We have set up a twitter feed that people can use to follow our git repository updates as we work on our projects at @AbsoluteZeroBot. Any future commits for ToDR, ToPX, and NDX will appear there. We added all of the past ToDR commits to get started.
I’ve also added a feed to the sidebar on the blog.
Some people have asked for a little more transparency when it comes to progress on the project. We’ve resisted automated solutions in the past because they don’t really allow us to paint a good picture of how things are going, but we think we’ve found a solution that will strike the right balance. The new twitter account will update whenever we push a commit to one of our git projects, providing the comment text for the commit and allowing people to plug into our projects a little more directly. The actual git repositories are going to remain private, so all you’ll see is the first 120 or so characters of the commit comments. If a comment is longer than that, it’s going to be truncated. The format for the postings will be “Project/User: Comment.” And in case anyone is wondering, Blade2187 is Kajitani-Eizan.
Honestly, a lot of these comments are going to be totally meaningless without knowing the context for them, but it will at least tell you when stuff is happening. So if you’re into that kind of thing, there you have it. And if not, more substantial updates will continue here as usual.
Edit: I totally forgot to give ShiftyAxel a shoutout. His comment on the previous post was what gave us the idea. Thanks!
