in reply to Signing your work? When do you and when dont you?

You're only citing "pride and honor" reasons for signing your code (contributions). I think there is a family of reasons not being considered: Change control. From this perspective, every modification to the source code should have an attributable source, which looks a lot like a signature.

Personally, I feel every snippet of code contributed must have a known author (and therefore, credit).

Best regards

    I couldn't agree more, although I would hope that most people in larger projects (where such questions often come up) are using a versioning system to track the individual changes. ;)
