Subversion (or SVN to its friends) is the software that the developers here at NixonMcInnes use to track the source code that they write. Each time some code is written or changed, it is ‘committed’ to SVN for safe keeping. Well the big excitement here is that we’re fast approaching the 10,000th code commit to SVN. I’m sure you’ll join us in cherishing this important milestone. As Steve emailed to the team this morning:
As I’m sure you are all only too aware, our 10,000th SVN commit is now imminent! These are exciting times!
We are all no doubt waiting with baited breath to see who will commit the coveted 10,000th revision! Fortunately, my friends, we can all follow the event, as it unravels, right here: http://twitter.com/devden
A lot of hard work has gone into these 10000 commits, so, what say we have a couple of beers to celebrate this momentous occasion? It will have to be on the day of the 10,000th commit which, of course, could be any day now! It goes without saying; there will be a prize for the proud new owner of revision 10000 and, who knows, maybe even a small consolation prize for the hapless soul left clutching revision 9999.
Good luck everyone!
