Nothing of the sort was asked, rather, we asked kernel devs to document with a few greppable words what they already know about the security impact of a given commit.
I'm afraid that as soon as it becomes easy to find out via grep which patches potentially fix security issues that people would start publishing stats about how many security issues have been fixed in the Linux kernel and that these stats would be used in negative publicity about the Linux kernel.
