Since when do ordinary users care about logged IP addresses? That's a
feature request I've never heard of, ever. Most teams of collaborators
care about *who* did the commit, not which computer people were sitting
at. Why do your users care? What's the use-case?

(In my experience, IP logs are things only admins care about, for
security/auditing purposes.)
