Feature request: DCO signoff through Github PR's

My company requires DCO signoff for PR’s. This is fine if someone submits a PR through Git, but there’s no way to suggest, remind, or require a DCO signoff if someone submits a PR after making edits through Github’s web interface. If they don’t add a signoff before submitting a PR, we have them download the PR, amend the commit by adding a signoff, then push the PR through Git. This defeats the point of allowing edits through Github’s web interface, which is that people should be able to make fast, easy edits without having to download the whole repo and make changes with a local editor.

Is there any way that Github could allow repo owners to require a DCO signoff before  a PR is submitted through Github’s web interface?
