The sign-off procedure is not about giving credits to you.  It is to
protect us from others (e.g. your employer) by having a record that
you claimed that you had the authority to give us the change.

For a single-liner change like this, this often does not matter in
practice, but we try to be consistent as it makes everybody's life
simpler to have a single procedure for all the patches.
