There is a such thing as "quality data" and "log data", and neither
are Orwellian (I don't find such accusation a very productive

Please be cognizant of the impacts of junk commits.  Trying to turn

huge mistake.   My backend db can handle it fine, it's everywhere else
that it taxes people (their disk, RAM, CPU, and network).
