Because it is an excellent time to think about "am I willing and able to
agree to the DCO?" As I said, for me personally working on git.git, that
is not generally an issue. But I think it is perfectly reasonable for
somebody to work and commit in isolation, and then only decide on the
DCO during the sending phase (perhaps because they need to clear it with
their company's legal department or some such). In other words, "it is
iffy at the time of commit" might be exactly the reason for some people.
If you are responding to my "that is not the particular reason in my
case", I will paraphrase the reason I gave earlier: I find it annoying
and pointless to type "-s" on every commit. We do not have
commit.signoff, but we do have format.signoff.
