    I actually think that tested-by and reviewed-by is not "signing",
    because it is not the person who does the "tag insertion".

    it was one of the signed-off-by's who put the reviewed- and testet-tags
    in there. presumably this is done in agreement with the mentioned
    person.

    And for facts, please check this out:

    $ git log --since=1-year-ago | grep -Pi "(reported|tested)-by:.*@" \
    | cut -f2- -d":" | sort | uniq | wc -l
    1280

    so i would say, these numbers (combied with your top ten which
    accounts for only 318 signatures ) suggest that those mentioned with
    these tag's are one-off bug reporters and not maintainers.

    cheers,
    Flo
