    Did you have to write something to do this, or is it a feature of GIT, never used GIT, how do you find it compared to SVN?

    Dale – actually, this is powered by several services.
    I use Yahoo Pipes (http://pipes.yahoo.com/) to combine several RSS feeds and massage them into an RSS feed that gives a list of the updates. You can see it here:

    I then take that RSS feed and pass it over to http://twitterfeed.com/ which takes RSS feeds and pushes them to twitter.

    As per Git – I LOVE it. The only issue with it is that it’s all command line, but you get used to it. The fact that you can commit on a purely local level is *insanely* powerful. The last ColdSpring push to the remote repository I did, was actually 3 minor commits, that I then locally squashed together and then pushed to the remote repository. It means I can make ‘save points’ in my development code any time I want without having to worry about pushing non-complete code to the rest of the developer team. There is so much more to Git, but it is seriously awesome.
