Currently coqbot merge commits are like
Author: coqbot <email@example.com> AuthorDate: Tue Aug 4 19:05:56 2020 +0200 Commit: GitHub <firstname.lastname@example.org> CommitDate: Tue Aug 4 19:05:56 2020 +0200
Having "Github" as the committer seems pretty strange
also shouldn't whoever gave coqbot the order be the author?
We're using GitHub's merge feature internally to have merge commits keep being signed (because we're not going to deploy a GPG key on our bot server), so I think the committer is likely going to stay GitHub (as is the case on any project using the merge button). Once we turn @coqbot into a proper GitHub App, we should be able to change the author's name. In the meantime, all we could do would be to add the merger as a co-author (in the merge commit).
