Parent article: Who wrote 2.6.32
Is that first table "Most active 2.6.32 developers" really tallied using changeset "from:" headers or is it "signed-off-by:" headers? If it is signed-off-by then at least in one case I think you are crediting the subsystem maintainer for all the work done by those actually working on that subsystem. Just a guess.
Also, something strange: Mauro is credited with 62719 lines of code changed yet that is still not enough changesets to break into the top-19 list by changeset? That means that those 62719 lines of code are spread over less than 70 changesets. That's nearly 900 lines / changeset. Seems out of scale. Maybe it was skewed by just a few enormous cases?
