I believe the Developer's Certificate of Origin (DCO) in Documentation/pr ocess/submitting-patches.rst just asks for a "full name". If Ayush has no surname, then I imagine that his actual full name Ayush should be good enough for the DCO. A line like "Signed-off-by: Ayush <email@example.com>" should be fine. _______________________________________________ Linux-kernel-mentees mailing list Linuxfirstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.linuxfoundation.org/mailman/listinfo/linux-kernel-mentees
