A Dataset of Multiple Types of Linux Kernel Patches

We share a dataset of a nine-year history of patches (666,550 patches produced from December 2008 to December 2017) and related discussion recorded by the LKML project on the Linux kernel patchwork. To better help future studies, we analyzed the review results of these patches, and marked three types: accepted patches, rejected patches, and patches that are rejected because of the communication problem.
