Harding <me@...in.cc> > > Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@...uxfoundation.org> Greg, I'm curious to why you are adding a "Signed-off-by"? That usually means that you either help author it, or it is going through your tree. I've never seen a "Signed-off-by" in passing. That's usually a "Acked-by" or "Reviewed-by". In other words, I was told that a "Signed-off-by" should never be added by anyone but the one who writes it. The original author adds it to the patch they send, and the maintainer adds it when they pull in that patch. But sending out a "Signed-off-by" like this, to be added, would require someone else writing it for you. Which I was told was a no-no. -- Steve
