Based on Linus' script to get the email address of a maintainer, I wrote
this bash script to get
an indication of relevant lists. Maybe you can make use of the part that
parses the
MAINTAINERS file for relevant lists?


git log --since="1 year ago" "$@" | sed -n "s/^ .[-a-z]*by: \(.*\) <.*$/\1/p" |
sort | uniq | sort -n -r | while read -r name; do
sed -n "/^P:[ \t]*.*$name/,/^$/{
s/^L:[ \t]*\(.*\)$/\1/p
done | sort | uniq -c | sort -n -r | while read -r nr list; do
tot=`grep -c "^L:\W*.*$list.*" ./MAINTAINERS`
echo "`expr $nr / \( $tot + 1 \)` $nr $tot $list"
done | sort -r | cut -d " " -f2- | while read -r nr tot list; do
echo -e "$nr/$tot Acks were commited by maintainers of list $list"
