Yesterday, Linus posted a request for discussion on the idea of a "developer's certificate of origin" for kernel patches. Today, the Open Source Development Labs has announced
that it is helping to implement the process.
"OSDL has committed to providing resources to ensure that contributions
made to the kernel adhere to the DCO and the process improvements. The Lab
will review the content of the contributions to confirm that submissions to
the kernel have been signed off by contributors in accordance with the DCO.
In addition, OSDL plans to launch an educational campaign for developers and
end users on the DCO and the process improvements.
