Either a "Reported-by" if you mentioned it to John and he fixed it, or a
"Tested-by" if he fixed it and you tested it. You can have both if that
is true too.

But "Signed-off-by" has supposed legal significance. It means that you
are responsible for this patch. Either you authored it, or it went
through you to get to the git repo (ie. you are the maintainer that took
the patch).

All other tags are FYI only. Only the SOB is required and has real
meaning. Also, you should *never* add a SOB to a patch without the
person explicitly giving it to you.
