The site and service will keep running and providing a decent RSS feed for Digg for the foreseeable future, and any improvements or patches that are suggested to the system will likely be pulled back into the live site to improve it too.
I decided to host it on github, which is the best thing since sliced bread in the ruby development world, everyone who is anyone is forking projects left right and center over there!

In light of the fun I’ve been having on github, I’ve got together with some other developers to create Githorde.org.
Githorde is a collection of developers, we pick an open source project to contribute to and swarm around it for a short amount of time, adding features, fixing bugs and generally helping to improve and promote the project.
Anyone is free to join the project, if you think you can help with design, coding or testing then join the horde!
If you have an account on github you can follow me to see what projects I’m currently working on: http://github.com/andrew

nb. Git is not a rails/ruby only thing, it was originally designed by Linus (of Linux fame), it’s just another source code management tool
