Option to use author instead of commiter in declarative pipeline

      Description

      Problem
      Right now when adding a GitHub source in Blue Ocean every change merged from a pull request is being shown as "Changes from noreply". This also impacts all plugins that rely on the commiters for a build since it effectively hides the actual authors (including when using `email-ext` or `mailer`).

      Since changing the default behaviour might be a breaking change, an option should be added to the pipeline so that each agent uses the correct strategy for the checkout.

      (in `git-plugin` this is called `AuthorInChangelog`)

      Scope

      • Switch to displaying the Author information for Git repositories (instead of Committer)
