-===== IP policy requirements ===== 
- 
-When a Linux Foundation project'​s IP policy requires DCO signoffs for contributions,​ a mechanism shall be set up to enforce them. 
- 
-In the contribution guidelines for each project (e.g. a CONTRIBUTING.md file) the project should explain the DCO requirement,​ and that commit sign-offs of the form ''​Signed-off-by:''​ are attestations according to [[https://​developercertificate.org/​]].
