That's an interesting number. I wonder if the "blame" for Linus (or possibly
more correctly the initial commit) can be trended to show when the kernel
will have been fully re-written PG (Post GIT).

It could only do that reliably if he wasn't writing any code at all anymore.

That's one reason I usually do initial commits with a distinct user id on any repository.
That makes it easy to see which code was in the initial commit (and would therefor possibly need to be checked for ownership in an older repository).

The cleaner solution of course is to get the hostoric information from the old repository also into the new one, but that doesn't always work (as, probably, during the BitKeeper->git move).

There is no need to do initial commits with a separate user id. I just need to adjust the scriptÂ…
