Limit users than can reference and fix issues in commit messages
Currently, all commit messages are analyzed and processed to update issues.
This can be an issue if one merges an existing git repository into the project's, if that said repository has commit messages that contain "fix issue #xyz" for example.
An easy way to fix this would be to actually edit the referenced/fixed issues from commit messages only if the committer is mapped to a Redmine user.
Hence, commit messages containing "fixes #xyz" from another repository wouldn't mess with the current project, because they are not linked to a Redmine user.

Actually the proposed behavior in #13762 perfectly matches what's described in this issue:
My solution is to add three configuratoin options to the repos.
 Allow altering of tickets through commit messages
 Allow system wide altering of tickets through commit messages
 Allow Non-mapped users in the repo to alter tickets through commit messages
I don't (apparently) have rights to mark this one as a dupe of #13762
