So ... do you qualify those commits as anonymous because of names you don't know OR because of synonyms they used in combination with anonymous (random) email addresses?

I'm asking because I think there is a difference. I think we can clearly identify the later but investigating the former is harder. Also, would be good to know the specific case to put them in relation. Thanks!

The "I don't care" part is a trust base between projects and committers and also guided by the boundaries given by EMO and EDP. If it's a larger project I do expect that this has been vetted within the larger project community anyway. Otherwise you wouldn't be a committer, would you?
