You're talking as if what is identified is a human being.  But of
course, it isn't.  When you do a git push (or whatever) what is pushed
is controlled by the computer you are using.

I would not want to use my workstation at work to push to Debian.  Nor
would I want to have to feed all the pushes I would do during my job
through my netbook so they can be appropriately authorised.

The github authorisation is in terms of ssh keys.  I have ssh keys
that live on my workstation at work.  And I have ones that live on my
own infrastructure.
