Just a comment on the 'Signed-off-by:' - we haven't
Developer's Certificate of Origin so I'm not sure if this means
Then the Sign-Off is indeed merely a no-op, so it can stay in,
presumably. :) Feel free to rewrite the log if you take my
signed-off-by noop out.
What we don't want are things like redlined Word docs, which of
would violate what was once known as the Harvey Birdman Rule. :-)
I should note -- so as to comply with said Harvey Birdman Rule myself --
that Fontana and I discussed this commit:
on a private IRC conversation yesterday. I noted that I was sad to see
the name gone, but assumed Fontana had taken it out because it was
primarily an inside joke between me and him. I did argue that sometimes
it's fun to have inside jokes extend into a community, but this one is
so tenuous that it's better removed. I agreed with Fontana on that.
OTOH, given that we're *still* publicly calling it the Harvey Birdman
Rule, perhaps we should just keep the name and have it merely be
nonsensical, for lack of a better name.
(Having posted that, I believe I put our private conversation in
compliance with Harvey Birdman Rule. :)
