== Developer Certificate of Origin
Your pull requests can be merged only if you can certify
the link:../DCO[Developer Certificate of Origin (DCO), Version 1.1].
To certify DCO (e.g. sign-off your commit), you must add
a `Signed-off-by` line to **every** git commit message
(e.g. by using `git commit -s`):
Your pull requests and patches can be merged only if you can certify
the link:./DCO[Developer Certificate of Origin (DCO), Version 1.1].
By signing-off your commit you certify DCO and acknowlegde that you have
the rights to submit your pull requsted or patch as an open-source patch,
as stated in link:./DCO[Developer Certificate of Origin].
Certifying DCO is done by adding a `Signed-off-by` line
to **every** git commit message:
Signed-off-by: gitlab-account <your.real@email.address>
If you set your `user.name` and `user.email` in git configs,
then git will include that line for you with `git commit -s`.
These settings can be done per repository basis,
so they don't have be global settings in your system.
If you set your `user.name` and `user.email` correctly in git config,
then git will automatically include that line for you with `git commit -s`.
You can also create a git `commit.template` with appropriate content. These
settings can be done per repository basis, so they don't have to be globally
set in your system.
