Attestation

By making a contribution to this project, I certify that:

  1. The contribution was created in whole or in part by me and I have the right to submit it under the license indicated in the file; or

  2. The contribution is based upon previous work that, to the best of my knowledge, is covered under an appropriate license and I have the right under that license to submit that work with modifications, whether created in whole or in part by me, under the same license (unless I am permitted to submit under a different license), as indicated in the file; or

  3. The contribution was provided directly to me by some other person who certified (a), (b) or (c) and I have not modified it; and

  4. In the case of each of (a), (b), or (c), I understand and agree that this project and the contribution are public and that a record of the contribution (including all personal information I submit with it, including my sign-off) is maintained indefinitely and may be redistributed consistent with this project or the license indicated in the file.

To indicate you understand and agree to this add a line to your contribution saying:

  Signed-off-by: Your Name <user@host.root>

using your real name and email address (sorry, no pseudonyms or anonymous contributions.)

Git makes it easy to add the Signed-off-by.

First, set up git with your real name and email address using commands such as these:

git config --global user.name "Your Name"
git config --global user.email user@host.root

Once that is done just use -s or –signoff when you commit:

git commit -s or git commit --signoff

Contributions that do not have a Signed-off-by cannot be accepted.
