Likely true, it probably doesn't matter.
Still, I'd imagine it doesn't hurt either.

Hope granted, but only via email... (smile)

Dunno. It certainly can be improved...
Try adding some more logic and see what you come up with.

btw:

The most frequent NO_AUTHOR_SIGN_OFF messages for v5.7..v5.8 are

98 WARNING: From:/SoB: email address mismatch: 'From: Daniel Vetter <daniel.vetter@ffwll.ch>' != 'Signed-off-by: Daniel Vetter <daniel.vetter@intel.com>'
24 WARNING: From:/SoB: email address mismatch: 'From: Thinh Nguyen <Thinh.Nguyen@synopsys.com>' != 'Signed-off-by: Thinh Nguyen <thinhn@synopsys.com>'
19 WARNING: From:/SoB: email address mismatch: 'From: Wolfram Sang <wsa+renesas@sang-engineering.com>' != 'Signed-off-by: Wolfram Sang <wsa@kernel.org>'
11 WARNING: From:/SoB: email address mismatch: 'From: Luke Nelson <lukenels@cs.washington.edu>' != 'Signed-off-by: Luke Nelson <luke.r.nels@gmail.com>'
8 WARNING: From:/SoB: email address mismatch: 'From: Christophe Leroy <christophe.leroy@c-s.fr>' != 'Signed-off-by: Christophe Leroy <christophe.leroy@csgroup.eu>'
6 WARNING: From:/SoB: email address mismatch: 'From: Davidlohr Bueso <dave@stgolabs.net>' != 'Signed-off-by: Davidlohr Bueso <dbueso@suse.de>'
5 WARNING: Missing Signed-off-by: line by nominal patch author '"Paul A. Clarke" <pc@us.ibm.com>'
4 WARNING: Missing Signed-off-by: line by nominal patch author 'Huang Ying <ying.huang@intel.com>'
3 WARNING: Missing Signed-off-by: line by nominal patch author '"Stephan Müller" <smueller@chronox.de>'

For the Missing Signed-off-by: lines above,
even after decoding, the email matches but
the names do not.

From: "Paul A. Clarke" <pc@us.ibm.com>
[...]
Signed-off-by: Paul Clarke <pc@us.ibm.com>

From: Huang Ying <ying.huang@intel.com>
[...]
Signed-off-by: "Huang, Ying" <ying.huang@intel.com>

From: =?UTF-8?q?Stephan=20M=C3=BCller?= <smueller@chronox.de>
[...]
Signed-off-by: Stephan Mueller <smueller@chronox.de>

I think it's fine.

cheers, Joe
