From Documentation/process/submitting-patches.rst:

"""
A Co-Developed-by: states that the patch was also created by another developer
along with the original author. This is useful at times when multiple people
work on a single patch. Note, this person also needs to have a Signed-off-by:
line in the patch as well.
"""

So it is not wrong to have two Signed-off-bys, just that
having the Co-Developed-by tag clearly shows that there
was more than one author.

Without the Co-Developed-by tag, the second Signed-off-by tag
is ambiguous, since the seconds Signed-off-by tag might just
have meant that that person was in the delivery chain of the
patch.

I think that the Co-Developed-by tag is optional, so if the
co-developer doesn't care about taking credit, it can probably
be skipped.


Kind regards,
Niklas
