Basically, you take a repository of code with some history, like Wedge's - and throw it at Gource and it makes a fun animated history of it.

Only @Nao and a few other people will be able to plug it into Wedge's history but if you have some other version-controlled code, it's fun to watch.

I'll try and record the video of this at some point and share it on YouTube but I really need to find the time to do that, and I don't want to until at least after the warning system is done.

How good can it look..? I mean, apparently it's Git-oriented, so it probably looks 'amusing' on branch merges, but we don't have those in Wedge..?

Oh, you'd be surprised.

I plugged into Wedge's repo last night, and it's quite nice to watch even with an SVN repo with no branch merges. I might set my laptop up to record it later on (but I'll speed it up, 10 seconds per 'day' means it takes hours to play out in full)

Interesting factoid, Wedge is almost 1000 days old. When we get there (it's two weeks or so), I'll make the video showing the history and post it on YouTube. Sound fair?
