Thanks. Yes, elfutils uses a Developer Certificate of Origin based on
the linux kernel one (but clarified for the elfutils project details -
like some files having multiple licenses at the same time). We do
require all commits to have a Signed-off-by line from developers that
agree with the DCO as explained in the CONTRIBUTING document.

The ChangeLog entries do mention both of us as authors.

That is what the run-elfclassify-self.sh testcase does I believe.
Or do you believe it should be extended?
