I thought Signed-off-by meant something like, "I agree to help debug
this if something goes wrong." It seems wrong to make that statement
to wine-devel on someone else's behalf. If I put a sign-off and send
it to wine-staging that means something different to me than if I send
it to wine-devel.

My understanding was the same as Dmitry's. If the original author
wants to sign-off on the patch, they should do it themselves. This
also makes the history a little more clear. A patch without a sign-off
from the author means it was submitted by someone else.
