A while back I stumbled across an excellent version control visualization tool called Gource and it’s sparked a minor obsession in “watching” developers do their thing from sort of a 10,000 foot view. Back in January I made a Gource video of the bitcon/bitcon repo on GitHub, though my local copy was quite out of date and I didn’t have access to very good music so what you got was sloppy, poorly compiled and had YouTube-provided music that barely matched the video. Still, it did pretty good, compared to the stuff I was posting back then and now that I’ve got the time and tools, I figured you all deserved a better copy, so here it is.
Points of interest include the first appearance of current lead developer Gavin Andresen at 0:50 and a furious explosion of activity at 1:47 (that actually syncs up nicely with the music this time).
