I'm on the Program Committee for the 5th Workshop on Public Data about Software Development (WoPDaSD 2010), and the paper deadline is coming up in March. I would really love to see you and/or other readers of LWN get this kind of data and analysis together as a workshop paper and submit it there. We don't get so many submissions from outside academia, and that's a shame—I'm confident that this work would be quite well-received.

"The full name of the compiler is "Compiler Language With No Pronounceable Acronym", which is, for obvious reasons, abbreviated "INTERCAL"."

I'm guessing writing a smarter script would be faster. :-P

once this is done the combined archive can be treated as a single archive and I expect that the scripts used for this report could be used as-is (although it will obviously take longer)
IIRC, the historical git archive goes all the way back to the 0.0x days (although not without gaps)

If anyone is interested, I can forward the ~210k archive of the program building the tree.
