I cannot find a verb in the above.

The above two paragraphs read more like "requesting help for hints
to improve this patch" than commit log message.  Perhaps move them
below the three-dash line and instead describe what you actually did
here (if they were worth explaining, that is)?

I find this paragraph totally unrelated to what the patch does.
Save it for the patch you add to pass --allow-unrelated-histories
given to pull down to underlying merge, perhaps?

	echo "Signed-off-by: $GIT_COMMITER_NAME <$GIT_COMMITTER_EMAIL>" >expect

or

	git var GIT_COMMITTER_IDENT |
	sed -e 's/^\([^>]*>\).*/Signed-off-by: \1/' >expect

I suspect somebody will suggest "test_commit -C" ;-)

I think it makes it more robust to replace "tail" with "collect all
the signed-off-by lines" like the other test (below) does.  Perhaps
have a helper function and use it in both?

	get_signoff () {
		git cat-file commit "$1" | sed -n -e '/^Signed-off-by: /p'
	}

Some may say "cat-file can fail, and having it on the LHS of a pipe
hides its failure", advocating for something like:

	get_signoff () {
		git cat-file commit "$1" >sign-off-temp &&
		sed -n -e '/^Signed-off-by: /p' sign-off-temp
	}

I think "--signoff" and "--signoff --no-signoff" are reasonable
minimum things to test.  Two more cases, i.e. running it without
either and with "--no-signoff" alone, to ensure that the sign-off
mechanism does not kick in would make it even better.

Thanks.
