>Signed-of-by:

* Used by original submitter(s).

>Acked-by:
>Tested-by:

* Used by random people to express their (dis)like/experience with the

>Reviewed-by:

* I am maintaner or an 'important' person and have had a

>Cc:

* Used by original submitter to denote additional maintainers it goes to
* Parties who should be Cced when an a posteriori question comes up
