I think the currently suggested process of keeping Co-developed-by and
Signed-off-by glued together is good, and I see no reason why this
should be changed, nor do I see any drawbacks.

The other tags, Reviewed-by, etc., can go anywhere just not between
Co-developed-by and corresponding Signed-off-by. So, why do you have
this need to put it exactly there rather than putting it anywhere

The commit message tells me what you are proposing, but there is no
rationale in the commit message and that is put up for discussion here
with the proposed change.

I see many potential areas of work for the checkpatch script, but in
my humble opinion, this really is not one of the rules that needs to
be improved.


(...snipped the rest...)
