I do it to indicate that I agree with the licensing terms of the
existing code and to make explicit that I want to let you use this
code (that to my best knowledge is of my own devising, does not
infringe any patents yaddayaddayadda...). That is what the Linux
kernel people use this tag for[0].

It is probably not necessary (and ineffective without the "Developer's
Certificate of Origin 1.1" included in the project) but I want to be
on the safe side.

If you prefer me not to do it, I won't in the future.
