Here it is -- point 12 at:

  To improve tracking of who did what, especially with patches that can
  percolate to their final resting place in the kernel through several
  layers of maintainers, we've introduced a "sign-off" procedure on
  patches that are being emailed around.

  The sign-off is a simple line at the end of the explanation for the
  patch, which certifies that you wrote it or otherwise have the right
  to pass it on as an open-source patch.

Not sure how useful is this with the much stricter copyright policy of
the FSF ...
