Feature Request Add Signed-off-by footer to web ui

Some projects require signing CLA and are validating this requirement, see https://github.com/apps/eclipse-eca-validation.

It would be great to have an “add Signed-off-by” button on the commit dialog that would simply check if the commit message has a footer, and add the line

Signed-off-by: UserName <selected email>

See https://wiki.eclipse.org/Development_Resources/Contributing_via_Git#Signing_off_on_a_commit
