While that's the case for the Linux kernel, that doesn't seem to be universally agreed upon usage for others (as is also indicated in your stackoverflow link).
Yeah, I've never seen it used that way either. The fact that the Linux kernel uses it is news to me. I don't really see a point to it (if you're trying to verify that a commit came from someone, wouldn't them putting a GPG'd message in the commit string be better?)
