Some neat stats just graphing the size of the bz2 patch for Linux next for the last 108 days (12 May through 28 August). Since Stephen doesn't produce patches on weekends, you can see the gaps (dashed lines are Mondays, Australian time)
The -rc1 dip is really clear (these patches are produced against the last labelled Linus kernel, so hence it's a one day drop), and you can see the -rc2, -rc3 and -rc4 dips diminishing like they're supposed to. Those sharp-eyed will note that during the merge window, kernel hackers work weekends :)
