Maybe we are mis-communicating here.
AFAIU, carefully checking Author: and Commit: is only relevant when
applying commits made by people without commit access. Same goes for
checking the copyright status of the patch authors.

Occasional committers do not usually apply patches made by others.

I think that "Copyright assignments" is suitable. "keep track of
copyright assignments" includes checking the copyright status of the
patch authors.

Fixed. Should be
"You don't need to do much more: confirming bugs is a critical contribution."
