The reason for the weird first part is that when we imported the
mztake code in it was taken with the commit history -- and since that
history was earlier than the main tree moving to Subversion, you see
it first.  You then see me starting a hugh boom of files around me,
only because I was the one who moved everything to subversion.  More

* To get a more complete picture, you'll need to merge the cvs history
  with the svn history (the old cvs repository is still there, see the
  bottom of svn.plt-scheme.org)

* The reason I have a very bright file next to me at all times is the
  nightly build updating the time-stamp file.  It's probably better to
  ignore it.

* It looks to me like you took the whole repository in -- there are
  some cases where it might be better to ignore activity in branches,
  and some where it's not.
