+Contributor Agreement
+
+Version 1.0
+
+Contributions of changes to this software are accepted only when they
+are properly accompanied by a Contributor Agreement. The Contributor
+Agreement for this software is the Developer's Certificate of Origin
+1.1 (DCO) as provided with and required for accepting contributions
+to the Linux kernel.
+
+In each change proposed to be included in this software, the
+developer must include a "sign-off" that denotes consent to the
+terms of the Developer's Certificate of Origin.  The sign-off is
+a line of text in the description that accompanies the change,
+certifying that you have the right to provide the contribution
+to be included.  For changes provided in source code control (for
+example, via a Git pull request) the sign-off must be included in
+the commit message in source code control.  For changes provided
+in email or issue tracking, the sign-off must be included in the
+email or the issue, and the sign-off will be incorporated into the
+permanent commit message if the contribution is accepted into the
+official source code.
+
+If you can certify the below:
+
+        Developer's Certificate of Origin 1.1
+
+        By making a contribution to this project, I certify that:
+
+        (a) The contribution was created in whole or in part by me and I
+            have the right to submit it under the open source license
+            indicated in the file; or
+
+        (b) The contribution is based upon previous work that, to the best
+            of my knowledge, is covered under an appropriate open source
+            license and I have the right under that license to submit that
+            work with modifications, whether created in whole or in part
+            by me, under the same open source license (unless I am
+            permitted to submit under a different license), as indicated
+            in the file; or
+
+        (c) The contribution was provided directly to me by some other
+            person who certified (a), (b) or (c) and I have not modified
+            it.
+
+        (d) I understand and agree that this project and the contribution
+            are public and that a record of the contribution (including all
+            personal information I submit with it, including my sign-off) is
+            maintained indefinitely and may be redistributed consistent with
+            this project or the open source license(s) involved.
+
+then you just add a line saying
+
+        Signed-off-by: Random J Developer <random@developer.example.org>
+
+using your real name (sorry, no pseudonyms or anonymous contributions.)
