I don't remember if this point has already been made, but we're using 
the Signed-off-by pseudo-header in a rather peculiar fashion. The 
standard meaning of Signed-off-by is something like "I have checked that 
I have the legal right to submit this patch for inclusion" (more 
specifically, see [1]), while we use it as "I have checked that this 
patch is technically sound". Other projects use other pseudo-headers for 
the latter, like "Reviewed-by" or "Acked-by".


Could we take the occasion to switch to something more standard?
