@Oxbot Tweets Our SVN Commits

Hey! We’ve made a fun little tool that tweets our subversion commit comments on Twitter. You can see the comments by checking http://twitter.com/oxbot :)

What…?

Subversion, or SVN for short, is a version-control system that keeps track of our project files when we work on Project B and other games. Think of it as a wiki for files that we add and update files on. Each time a file is modified, SVN keeps track of who made the changes, and makes backups so that changes can be reverted if necessary.

Each commit is also tagged with a small comment describing why the commit was made. It’s this comment that our bot picks up and puts on twitter.

Why…?

Because we can! Also, because this will let you keep track of Project B. We want to be more open about the project, and this is a step in that direction. Actual game information, such as screenshots and a game name, will come later.

Retweet!

I posted a while back that I had started using Twitter for my own random thoughts and Oxeye-related news. Now both thewreck and Kinten have joined the tweeting, so a new announcement felt necessary :)

So, if you follow these three people: @jeb_ @Kinten and @vraket, you’ve covered 60% of Oxeye and like 99% of Oxeye-related information! Hooray! In addition, the good thing about Twitter is that if you find us obnoxious, you can simply unfollow us again ;)

@jeb_ Twitter

Hey

I’ve recently started using Twitter because I wanted to check out what the fuzz was about. I am still not completely convinced, but with the help of DestroyTwitter it has at least become a lot easier to keep track of tweets.

In case you want to fetch my updates, follow jeb_. I’m currently tweeting all kinds of things, so please give me some feedback on how to make it more interesting.
