Dear Sir/Ma'am
I have performed some tasks on Checkpatch.pl to find out the aggregate and
summary of Errors and Warnings that have been generated on certain Linux
Kernel Versions' commits . The summary of my tasks are as follows:
1. Task1: Create a list of all non-merge commits that were added in the
version v5.8 but were not there in v5.7. Run checkpatch.pl script on these
commits and create a statistical summary of findings.
My findings:

My Scripts for this task:

2. Task2: Test what are errors and warnings by checkpatch.pl reports on
v5.6..v5.8. Generate a report with respect to changes suggested by
Dwaipayan Ray (
https://lore.kernel.org/linux-kernel-mentees/20201007192029.551744-1-dwaipayanray1@gmail.com/),
to present the differences in a suitable aggregated form, to find out the
kind of errors and warnings that are changing.

My Findings:
Change in the number of warnings and errors:
