Since it is acting on behalf of the "someone with appropriate access
to the right machine", and that is the person providing the "rebuild
for the GCCC10 transition" message, it would seem natural to me that
that's the name the changelog is signed with. After all, my changelog
entries are not signed by my Emacs or my debchange.
