Sign Your Commits
Licensing is important to open source projects. It provides some assurances that the software will continue to be available based under the terms that the author(s) desired. We require that contributors sign off on commits submitted to our project's repositories. The Developer Certificate of Origin (DCO) is a way to certify that you wrote and have the right to contribute the code you are submitting to the project.
You sign-off by adding the following to your commit messages. Your sign-off must match the git user and email associated with the commit.
This is my commit message Signed-off-by: Your Name <email@example.com>
Git has a
-s command line option to do this automatically:
git commit -s -m 'This is my commit message'
If you forgot to do this and have not yet pushed your changes to the remote repository, you can amend your commit with the sign-off by running
git commit --amend -s
