of open source
The coders of Open Source often do a second shining of their code – and when they do they mark their commit with the word “polish”.
And by “polish” they don’t mean a person from Poland, but: I am not changing any functionality with this commit, but make the code better, prettier, more extensible, less DRY …
The listings below are all outputs from the following one liner:
git log -i --grep=polish --pretty=format:"%an" | sort | uniq -c | sort -nr

Jürgen Höller is topping this list. He is one of the two founders of this framework, he is the top committer and is renowned for his very high quality software code. And the term Jürgenized is made in his name:
The process of turning code to solve a problem at hand that might look sufficient at the first glance into rock solid, quality assured, perfectly documented and extensible code. Jürgenization

Spring Boot is a fairly young project. Not surprising to see one of the two project leads, Phillip Webb (940 commits), on top of this list. A little more surprising not seeing Dave Syer (1261 commits), the other project lead, on this list.

Almost no polishing from the Hibernate department.
Seems like this is a Spring thing. Like spring cleaning …
