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 checkpatch.pl, 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 maintainers. 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.
