Add a `Signed-off-by` trailer by the committer at the end of the commit
log message. The meaning of a signoff depends on the project
to which you're committing. For example, it may certify that
the committer has the rights to submit the work under the
project's license or agrees to some contributor representation,
such as a Developer Certificate of Origin.
(See for the one used by the
Linux kernel and Git projects.) Consult the documentation or
leadership of the project to which you're contributing to
understand how the signoffs are used in that project.
The --no-signoff option can be used to countermand an earlier --signoff
option on the command line.
