Add an admin without Github account to Netlify CMS

I want to a new user to be able to edit the site content with netlify cms without having a Github account. I added a user with email and password authentication and when he is logged in and goes to /admin there is a Login with Github button. How can he edit the content without a Github account?

Thanks for your help, kind regards Heiner

You can use the git gateway backend: Git Gateway | Netlify CMS | Open-Source Content Management System

Hello Tom, thanks for your help. All I had to do was change the backend name in config.yaml from github to git-gateway and everything worked as expected.
