Subject: Status of arch/arm in linux-next
Date: Thursday 14th April 2011 09:44:47 UTC (over 7 years ago)
This morning, I looked at linux-next to find out how arch/arm is doing for the next merge window. $ git diff -C --cumulative v2.6.39-rc1... arch 19.7% arch/arm/mach-imx/ 19.2% arch/arm/mach-mx3/ 3.4% arch/arm/mach-mxc91231/ 18.1% arch/arm/mach-ux500/ 74.1% arch/arm/ 3.2% arch/m68k/ 4.0% arch/mips/lantiq/ 6.9% arch/mips/ 3.1% arch/x86/kvm/ 7.6% arch/x86/ 100.0% arch/ $ git diff -C --cumulative v2.6.39-rc1... arch/arm 4.7% arch/arm/mach-imx/ 5.9% arch/arm/mach-msm/ 6.3% arch/arm/mach-mx3/ 8.8% arch/arm/mach-mxc91231/ 7.6% arch/arm/mach-ux500/include/mach/ 46.1% arch/arm/mach-ux500/ 3.6% arch/arm/mach-zynq/ 5.9% arch/arm/plat-mxc/include/mach/ 7.3% arch/arm/plat-mxc/ 100.0% arch/arm/ $ git diff -C --shortstat v2.6.39-rc1... arch/arm 450 files changed, 11973 insertions(+), 5736 deletions(-) Note that with --cumulative, the %age given includes all child directories (so the 74% for arch/arm includes everything below it). So, almost 75% of changes in arch are down to arch/arm. For arch/arm, there's 6k new lines introduced - so there's a significant amount of new work there. Folk may want to consider that we're three weeks from Linus' rant, and there's little sign of the situation changing. It looks to me from these statistics that it's business as usual. Please take a moment to consider how Linus will react to this at the next merge window.
