x/build: “Gerrit User XXX” displayed instead of actual name in Gerrit messages #28663
#28659 (comment) says "Message from Gerrit User 5056". This needs to be fixed, and soon.
It's easy to fix - the usual Gerrit REST API ChangeInfo uses the right names. I'm perplexed as to why the maintner feed says these things but at least the bot could re-fetch the actual Gerrit comments directly from Gerrit (only when it needs to post one to GitHub, so fairly low rate) to find out real names.
#28662 means that from Gerrit I can't tell who is writing the CL and this bug means that from GitHub I can't tell who is reviewing the CL. This is not really an acceptable review process.
