    i think it's also a good learning tool. Subscribing to git-commits-head
    might be more useful to a newbie these days than subscribing to lkml :-/

    and one area where commit messages are totally important IMO is bug
    forensics. For every regression we find we try to put in the commit ID
    that broke it. Information like that is vital to have a good (and
    objective) picture about how bugs get into and get out of the kernel and
    it also alerts us to change/improve infrastructure if certain categories
    of bugs happen too often.
