Just thought I'd share a GitHub feature I'd not previously known about: adding `Co-authored-by: name <>` to a commit message gives that person "credit" for helping author a commit.

It seems like this might be a nice way to give a little thumbs up to new contributors whose PRs need a little brushing up before they can be merged -- or at least a nice alternative if they're having trouble implementing recommendations.

Cool. I’ve seen that happen automatically after a rebase or something, but nice to know you can do it intentionally.
