A bunch of updates around Google's summer of code. I attended this because of the Git Update in the schedule.

Git Dev over last year
- 3,037 commits
- release about every 6 weeks
- 248 contributors

Hosting Linux Kernel
- time taken is 2m30s to clone Linux Kernel from google's hosted servers
- GitHub takes 5m37s
- takes around 6m

Google has improved speed by changing the algorithm.

JGit 3.0 ("jgit debug-gc")
Gerrit Code Review 2.6 ("gerrit gc")

Android OS project
548 repos

Gerrit Code Review appears to be a competitor to GitHub but perhaps only for an intranet. Not sure if it's hosted.
