X.Org developers may use a number of tags to acknowledge patches, both in a commit message and when reviewing patches. Here's a short summary for each tag, please refer to [[the Linux kernel's Documentation/SubmittingPatches|]] file for details. The summaries below are copied from that file.
- * **Signed-off-by:** certifies that you wrote it or otherwise have the right to pass it on as a open-source patch.
+ * **Signed-off-by:** certifies that you wrote it or otherwise have the right to pass it on as a open-source patch. Specifically, that you agree to the [[Developer's Certificate of Origin|]]
* **Acked-by:** If a person was not directly involved in the preparation or handling of a patch but wishes to signify and record their approval of it then they can arrange to have an Acked-by: line. Acked-by: does not necessarily indicate acknowledgement of the entire patch.
* **Tested-by:** A Tested-by: tag indicates that the patch has been successfully tested (in some environment) by the person named. This tag informs maintainers that some testing has been performed, provides a means to locate testers for future patches, and ensures credit for the testers.
* **Reviewed-by:** A Reviewed-by tag is a statement of opinion that the patch is an appropriate modification without any remaining serious technical issues. Any interested reviewer (who has done the work) can offer a Reviewed-by tag for a patch.
