On the scalability of Linus

On the scalability of Linus

Parent article: On the scalability of Linus

The article provided some nice stats to show the number of pulls has been dropping over time. It would be nice to see similar stats to back up this statement:

For 2.6.35, quite a few developers saw the merge window end with no response to their pull requests; Linus simply decided to ignore them.

Without such stats it is difficult to be sure if the number of pulls has dropped because Linus was ignoring requests, or because there just isn't anything to pull.

Is there a way of measuring it?

You could measure the number of patches in linux-next at the start of the merge window which don't get pulled by the end of the merge window. But it's not an easy thing to measure.

Probably because it's summer at last here in EU :)
