Hi everyone ! I know that a post one the blog is being prepared for this year’s anniversary. I proposed on IRC to make a little video with gource to illustrate 4 years of developping D*.
You can watch my proposition here.
Fiew things about the video : I highlighted some key dates in the developpement time. The gource sections between them have a speed varying between 85% et 120% of the original speed. That speed is already pretty high (0.05 second per day of developpement). So it would be difficult to make it faster.
I managed to download the avatars of the hundred most contributive people on github thanks to a python script I wrote, but the project counts 275 unique contributors, so I coudn’t get the avatar of everyone, unless I’d download them by hand…
For an obscure reason, I didn’t get the avatars of all the four original founders. I only get Maxwell’s. Maybe their not on github anymore ?
The other weird thing is that @jonnehass’s didn’t intergrate well, although I get his avatar. I suppose this is because gource, doesn’t manage very well the eszett in his name…
The music in the video is from Perturbator. It is disctributed on Bandcamp at the customer’s choosen price. Fot hose who know, it is a track from the soundtrack of tha game Hotline Miami. I found it integrated well with the shiny style of gource.
If we want to use eventually, I suggest one of the project’s leaders to contact him.
One last thing : @flaburgan pointed out that the date the project passed to the community in august. I’m going to correct it quick
EDIT : I’ve corrected the mistake and modified a bit the video editing. The new video is here
