  • My script lists all users & the number of commits they made in the period, sorted alphabetically. To sort by number of commits, append a '|sort' to the end of the command. The script depends on the output format of svn log - original command didn't work for me because the string 'user' was not appearing in my output

    svn log -r{2011-08-01}:HEAD|awk '$14 ~/line/ {print $3}'|sort|uniq -c
