    Nice enough script.
    It's unfortunate that it can't output the appropriate mailing lists.

    I think the shell script that Linus gave awhile ago:
    http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/8/14/276

    #!/bin/sh
    git log --since=6.months.ago -- "$@" |
    grep -i '^ [-a-z]*by:.*@' |
    sort | uniq -c |
    sort -r -n | head

    (Maybe you want to add a
    grep -v '\(Linus Torvalds\)\|\(Andrew Morton\)'

    might work just as well.

    I still prefer the file pattern match in MAINTAINERS, or
    another external file, and/or data stored directly into GIT
    via gitattributes approaches.

    This script can give maintainer, mailing lists, and git
    contact information for patches or files.
    http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/8/20/352
    The script works with git-send-email to cc the appropriate parties.

    This script and git repository is very old and probably doesn't apply...
    git pull git://repo.or.cz/linux-2.6/trivial-mods.git get_maintainer
