    This raises an interesting question. If Marcono1234@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx registers for an Eclipse account with that email and a random name he/she should be able to sign the ECA and the bot approves. That's why we still need committers to check. As a committer, I still think that I do not want anonymous contributors in my projects. That's not a trustworthy base of communication and collaboration in my opinion. I think this will also raises a lot eyebrows for a large adopter/consumer base.
    I still think requiring a legal name is a good thing. I'll put the topic on the call agenda for tomorrow. :) 
+1, I see this like Gunnar, and don't want anonymous contributors.
If a contributor doesn't trust the project enough to disclose his name why should the project trust the anonymous contributor ?
