I'm not sure how strict the backend is about commits pulled from
elsewhere. Ideally it should only record the currently authenticated
user or at most require a Signed-Off-By entry from the committer who's
pushing the commits. I'll see what I can find out.
The backend check that the committer (not author) address of each
commit being pushed is an @apache.org address of one of the committers
authorized to push to the repository.
Checking the committer address seems way too strict as it would
require breaking history on all pull requests from outside the core
development group. I'll bring this up on infra-dev@ , to see how we
could best address the issue.
