Re: [DISCUSS] Automated DCO enforcement via bot

Are both the CLA and DCO required for Linux Foundation contributors? It'd be a lot easier if we only needed one or the other.

Hi all,

Right now, the only bot-automated enforcement is the CLA signature, but not the Developer Certificate of Origin, which is a requirement of The Linux Foundation. This is a bit of a pain to do manually, and I haven't had time to add it to the CLA verification tool we're using.

I noticed some CNCF repos are using this bot:
to do the enforcement automatically, and I (inadvertently) tested it as I didn't realize one of the repos had a DCO requirement, and it worked flawlessly!

What are your thoughts on adding it to the JanusGraph repos? This means it'll be a blocker to PR submission, just like failing Travis CI.

This should have no functional change, since everyone should be signing those commits already; this will just enforce it automatically so it doesn't have to be checked by a human.
