Wow. That's my bad entirely. I apparently hallucinated a section
suggesting that you “sign-off” commits that you'd reviewed, or
something; and I'd completely skipped the section on certifying that
you have legal rights to the work, because I'd *written* it, and
didn't think it'd be relevant.

I feel like an idiot. Forgive me. I'll --signoff my next version of
the patch. o7
