community or TDF unless they have been approved to do so.

Perhaps a mandatory signature like the following would be sufficient:

(First Name) Name
- LibreOffice community member -

In this case a mail address like might be sufficient 

And in case of possible abuse (or deliberate misinterpretation) the community 
membership can be revoked...

If usage of the mail address still looks too risky, I'd vote for
