When Helm moved from a CLA to a DCO, it meant I needed to start adding a signoff to my commits on that project. While git makes this almost easy, by using the
--signoff flag, it means I need to remember to use the flag when committing.
To make it easier I created an alias so I can use
git cs and it will commit with signoff.
To create the alias I ran the command:
$ git config --global alias.cs 'commit --signoff'
After that, I had an alias I could use when using a signoff.
