I really don't think that we need to get into "Signed-off-by" and the
like. That sort of process has some value for the kernel people because
they often have a lengthy chain of merge responsibility between the
originator of a given patch and the person who ultimately commits it
into the master tree. Also, they are maintaining what is essentially a
single, coherent work for copyright purposes and hence they need to be
at least slightly careful about tracking ownership of IP rights.
Neither of these considerations really applies to the OE metadata
repository in its current form, and it's not clear what would be gained
by using or requiring this kind of signoff procedure.
