Software development is a collaborative activity involving sentiments that can affect developers' productivity, creativity, and contribution satisfaction. Thus, different parts of the source code can be built either positively or negatively. In the Linux Kernel Mailing List (LKML), the discussions can get excited as different people from distinct cultures and interests are part of it. Besides that, the sentiment can vary across subsystem communities. The more positive discussions a community has, more attractive for contributing this community is. Finally, the patch acceptance or rejection may impact contributors' sentiment and retention. Sentimine is a plugin on top of the cregit platform focused on analyzing the sentiment behind the Linux Kernel code. As a result, project leads and maintainers can improve developers' sentiments, and, consequently, the team retention and satisfaction.
