Looking for projects with lots of refactorings

I'm doing research into software evolution and C#/.NET, specifically on identifying refactorings from changesets. I'm looking for a suitable (agile-like) project that may serve as a test subject for extracting refactorings from version control history.

Do you know of any projects that have undergone large (number of) refactorings? I'd love to hear!

The result of this research will be a tool that automatically creates informative, concise comments for a changeset. This should improve on the common practice of just not leaving any comments at all..
