Cool! Anyone want to do the full wave signature from Linus' original
release to now? We can analyze that, apply some filtering on it, then
divine a baseline wavelet we can apply to any software project's
release history. I knew those years I wasted processing seismic data
would come in handy someday.
On the other hand, hmmm. I notice no spikes in the data above. :-| I
think we want spikes in this area. Versioning is too coarse a
dataset. We'll have to slurp changelogs instead.
Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
