    Does your S-o-b means you care for inclusion in mainline?[1] Or should
    I record that as an Acked-by?

    Best regards

    [1] Quoting Documentation/SubmittingPatches:
    "The Signed-off-by: tag indicates that the signer was involved
    in the development of the patch, or that he/she was in the
    patch's delivery path.

    If a person was not directly involved in the preparation or
    handling of a patch but wishes to signify and record their
    approval of it then they can arrange to have an Acked-by: line
    added to the patch's changelog."
