Old Projects Never Die

Just had an email from someone enquiring about the changes I made to StatCVS. Wow, that was back in 2005.

StatCVS gives you various statistics about your code in the CVS repository. It's a great tool and provides some real insights into who's doing what. But it always amazed me that it only worked off the head branch. Since the project I was working on did most of the development in a branch, I couldn't run StatCVS on it.

No real problem though, as this is an Open Source project meaning that I could get the code and change it to work with branches. Try doing that with commercial products ;)
