You can always create a repository and run your own tests. That's what I
just did. No issues with committing as another user.

However, I'm not sure whether you'd want to encourage the practice or not.
User B could have easily committed the work as User A which would be closer
to the truth. I'm assuming something like this would come up if User A left,
and someone has to check in the work User A did.
