Development Update

So... what's up with SST development? is it active?

I ran Gource against the trunk branch and created an awesome visualization (with soundtrack!) to show off development activity:

video: link (with soundtrack)
video: link (no soundtrack)

The magic incantation of `gource` to produce the video:

$ gource \
    -s .3 \
    -1280x720 \
    --auto-skip-seconds .3 \
    --multi-sampling \
    --stop-at-end \
    --hide mouse,progress \
    --file-idle-time 0 \
    --max-files 0  \
    --background-colour 222222 \
    --font-size 20 \
    --logo docs/assets/sst-logo_small.png \
    --title "SST Development - lp:selenium-simple-test" \
    --output-ppm-stream - \
    --output-framerate 30 \
    | ffmpeg -y -r 30 -f image2pipe -vcodec ppm -i - -b 2048K movie.mp4

(rendered on Ubuntu 11.10, audio mixed with Pitivi)

The soundtrack was a bad idea. I'm unable to view the video because the song isn't licensed for Germany, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gesellschaft_f%C3%BCr_musikalische_Auff%C3%BChrungs-_und_mechanische_Vervielf%C3%A4ltigungsrechte . Could you upload a version with a creative commons song instead?
