Also people who do translations. Perhaps we can institute other
sensors/probes that can track such activity? (Committing to a VCS could
send off a email to a bot recording who did the commit, for example).
This can detect any activity by a person on a team VCS site, for
Setting up a bot should not be too much work, once we set out
the format of the structured email received. And an archive of the
mail, perhaps sorted by the human it is attributed to, can help a human
auditing the system.
Life is a yo-yo, and mankind ties knots in the string.
