Hi Everybody,

I am professor of computer science at the University of Victoria

During the last year and a half, we have been trying to track the
commits as they move in the entire linux git repos ecosystem. We have
amassed a good amount of data that tell us for every commit (and in fact
for every unique patch inside a commit) where it has been and whether it
has reached linus or not ---or any other repository, as a matter of

please look at the following URLs:


it will give you an idea of the data we have. You can also track other
commits using the input box, if you are interested.

I wonder if this information is of use to any of you. If you have
specific needs on how you think this info (and some more we have) can be
of use, please let me know.

By the way, I'll be at the Linux Collaboration Summit next week (I am
involved with the development of SPDX). If any of you is interested to
meet, please let me know,
