GitHub Signatures in Gitea

A small lifehack for the Gitea owners. As you may know, GitHub signs commits done with its web interface with its GPG key. These commits may end up on your Gitea server. It looks rather unconvincing:

Luckily it is fixable by a simple lifehack:

  1. Register user 'github'

  2. Log in with it and optionally set up a profile

  3. Add the web flow GPG key:

  4. Add [email protected] to the account emails

  5. Mind the security and disable sign-in for this account

The signatures will look much better:
