I would say that if you rebase someone's commit(s), then you are on the
"patch's delivery path" and so should add a Signed-off-by tag. (cc'ing
Linus to see if he has an opinion. Linus, the case here is a patch
originally committed by one maintainer and then rebased by the other.)

"git rebase" does have a "--signoff" option.
