In addition to those GitHub spammers, another bunch of stupid Chinese companies are scanning "git log" of torvalds/linux.git, days and nights. You got a patch merged into the mainline by Greg K.H, and you have a Chinese sign-off name?
Congrats! You'll get automated spams immediately: We offers top job opportunities for experts like you (lol, I don't even believe myself is one), blabla.
EVERY SINGLE TIME. 😡
Another day, another spammer from some stupid companies in China who scrapped my E-mail address by scanning "git log" of torvalds/linux.git. And this time it even has English translation...
Strangely, I didn't even submit any patches to Linux kernel in recent months. Perhaps their bots just git pulled the latest torvalds/linux.git and found my address anyway...
@niconiconi it actually makes sense though. even if it's just adding a case statement or fixing documentation spelling, daring submit a patch to mainline proves something. you know, not everyone spots the chance :doge:
@niconiconi as far as the campaign cost is concerned, any remote correlation is good enough. I haven't received these for a while though, which kinda saddens me when there're only U.S. Navy Fund popping up.
@tjm Don't be too serious about the content of these mails. You'll receive them even if all you did was correcting a typo in the kernel code, which was what I did...
