 I believe `Signed-off-by' serves this purpose:

"The Signed-off-by: tag indicates that the signer was involved in the
development of the patch, or that he/she was in the patch's delivery path."

-- as originally specified by linux/Documentation/SubmittingPatches that 
we refer to from <http://wiki.qemu.org/Contribute/SubmitAPatch>.  See also 
Section 1, Point 12 "Sign your work" in the same document referred.

 The way the tag has been defined may make it a little bit ambiguous who 
the actual authors are, but I think it is safe to interpret it as meaning 
that all people named by `Signed-off-by' tags of a given patch being the 
authors of the change.
