I wrote that wiki paragraph based on my understanding of the discussion at
WineConf 2015. If I remember correctly, the primary concern was to know who
to blame if a patch causes a regression. I didn't write the bit about Git's
format.signOff option; I don't use it myself and I wouldn't recommend it.

My opinion is that if a patch was submitted to Staging with a sign-off, the
sign-off should be kept, because Staging is an official part of Wine and
its patches are intended to be upstreamed. However, if the patch was found
on Bugzilla, GitHub, etc., the sign-off should not be kept without the
original author's permission.
