One of the downsides both the git-am and cherry-pick workflows are that
they invalidate or otherwise omit commit signatures.

git-merge on the other hand does preserve the signature as the original
commit is intact, and the merge commit is where the signature of the
gentoo developer is introduced.

I agree clean history is valuable, but verifiable attribution may in
fact be more important.
