I am using an external service to commit to a repository (translation service - pootle)

where it says
From: user b <user bs bitbucket email>
the only place where its shown correctly is on the overview / Dashboard where it shows
Pushed to group/repository

user 1 - 22 minutes ago
so i am very confused now, why it shows user B anywhere, though he didnt directly commit anything to the repository, the only thing was that he "accidently" uses an email adress of a existing bitbucket user ... he did however never pass any credentials or password to bitbucket to prove that ... as the authentification was done using an ssh key that is only put into account A
