It is mostly "I do not signoff because typing '-s' each time I commit is
a pain". I know it is supposed to be a conscious decision, but I think
it is a little silly. Since everything I do for git.git is going to be
signed-off, either I will automate it, or I will end up typing it
without thinking.  Whenever I make a conscious decision, it is to
_withhold_ signoff, since that is the exceptional case.

But even without that, I still think format-patch is a reasonable time
to do it. It is the time when I proof-read my commit message and patch
in its final form, and think "do I really want to send this?". That
seems to me like a reasonable time to make such a conscious decision to
signoff (or not).

Yes. :)
