The Linux Kernel Continued Growing In 2016Q1: +500k L.O.C.

With the first quarter being through at just around the time of the Linux 4.6 kernel merge window being done, I was curious to run some Git statistics on the Linux kernel code-base.

The latest numbers this week for the Linux kernel Git code-base peg the total file count as 53,647, 21,414,097 lines of code, 588,744 commits, and these commits were done by 15,150 authors.
