How do kernel maintainers actually pull together all git trailers from a patch thread?

I mean... if you have a thread with 100 patches and contributors reply to all of them with "Signed-of-by" and/or "Acked-by" ... how does the maintainer who applies the patches actually fetch all those trailers and put it into the commit message?

I cannot find maintainer scripts in the kernel repository for this...

@musicmatze If you apply a patch by other dev that doesn't appear automagically?

Maybe I didn't understand you question
