Hi Jiri, Christoph,

You don't want to accept these contributions even if you won't be able
to tell the difference on your end? But why? This looks really
orthogonal to a person's expertise and proficiency in software
development. Whether that's inability to deal with email, or no desire
to spend time on that, or just personal preferences.

On the other hand this workflow has the potential to ensure that you
never need to remind to run, nor spend time on writing
code formatting comments and re-reviewing v2 because code formatting
will be enforced, etc. So I see how this is actually beneficial for

For what it's worth I currently can't send emails with git because
Gmail with phone auth does accept plain passwords nor ASP. As far as I
understand proper two-factor auth would work, but phone auth is
different (kind of 1.5-factor). I know it's solvable, e.g. I can get
another account somewhere, but I don't see setting this up and
maintaining and checking a second account as a worthy time investment.
