Yes, you should.  When you don't the infrastructure admins get spammed until
someone either fixes the mismatch or alerts me and I get time to put in
a mapping for the bugzilla email address.

Everything in Fedora uses the FAS account.  So, for instance, bodhi needs to
know whether the person pushing an update has permission which means that
they need to enter their fas account to match up with what's in the pkgdb.

Implementing a separate login just for comments would also be a lot of extra
work although it would be more segregated from the rest of the code so it
might be doable.
