Discussion on: Signed Git commits in VS Code

Make sure to look up the discussion around whether you should auto-sign or not.

Linus Torvalds for instance is against it.

I personally do auto-sign my own work.

Just suggesting that you look into the discussion and make your decision.

Thank you Anthony for your suggestion!

I found this thread where Linus describes his opinion about auto-sign commits. But I'm not really sure I understood his point correctly... For me it sounds more that he argues for a different use case: the verification of the integrity of a release (git tags) or entire project. For me it's more about verifying the authorship of single commits.
