This blog post suggests the equivalent of removing seatbelts in a car in order to “make it faster”
Technically, that saves a small bit of weight, thus the car will be faster… /s
it’s unfortunate github still doesn’t support signed pushes considering this feature has been available in git for years.
looks like libgit2 (upon which github is implemented) has no support for push certificates.
in jgit, there’s only support for verifying (but not generating) push certificates.
for signed pushes to see more adoption, there needs to be better support for it in alternative client implementations
