So each of these was originally committed by Andy... but appear as
committed by me. This must have occured as a rebase of our testing
branch I suppose. Nothing has been out of the ordinary this development
cycle, so I wonder that we haven't received such a report previously.

Is this a new check Stephen?

Is there any statement regarding maintainer teams that we must abide by
this? e.g. any time a rebase in a testing branch is made, the
maintainer must also ensure a SOB is on each patch?

I just want to get a clear picture of what the failure was so we can
update our tooling so this doesn't repeat itself.
