As far as I understand, that is for the tip tree (though
`` complained too), and I am not sure in that guide they
intend it to mean it is the only form accepted.

In this case, I ended up deciding to add it since it was not a
Signed-off-by/Reviewed-by/Acked-by (so not as critical, i.e. no
DCO/RSO/...) and there are quite a few other instances, including
different CIs and tools, raw emails, security teams, etc.

So it doesn't look like it is required to be a "real name" like some
of the other tags, and sometimes we may need to do otherwise anyway
(for those cases), and I guess we don't want to discourage reports too
much. Perhaps we can, at least, ask for an email address -- that is
way more common in the log, and gives us a potential way to contact
people and send the patches to.

In any case, I agree we should prefer the "real name" way as much as
possible. I had sent a message to each GitHub issue/PR linking back to
the patches, but I will send another to offer them to use their real
name if they prefer.

Thanks for taking a look! :)
