>>> Speaking of Linus, he not only didn't make the list above, but he wasn't even close: his 71 signoffs put him in the 22nd position.

Very strange because, according to this site, Linus has 506 signoffs during this 2.6.34 cycle and he is number 5 on the signoff list.
Where is the truth?

Linus's signoffs

They're both true. Sorry, it's been a while since I explained this little detail: when counting Linus's signoffs, I disregard those which appear on patches which already carry Andrew Morton's signoff. Everything that goes through Andrew gets Linus's signoff because Andrew sends them as email; if he put them in a tree to be pulled, this wouldn't happen. Not counting those gives a much more true indication of how many patches Linus himself has reviewed and accepted.

Thanks for the explanation.
