What is it?

This is a visualization of Python core development. It shows growth of the Python project's source code over time (August 1990 - June 2012). Nearly 22 years! The source code history and relations are displayed by Gource as an animated tree, tracking commits over time. Directories appear as branches with files as leaves. Developers can be seen working on the tree at the times they contributed to the Python project.
