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
