In support of Launchpad once again: Browsing the github docs, I don't see a
way for this to be made automatic and continual through the site. (Of
course, it's clearly against their financial interest to promote cvs/svn.)
Launchpad appears to support it happily:

I see biopython-test hasn't been set up this way yet. Should I try setting
up a continuous mirror like this (under a name like biopython-cvs-test)? Or,
would Bartek or Giovanni prefer to?

It doesn't seem to work with gnash 0.8.4/amd64, but I think you could use
gitk to get mostly the same information minus the snazzy site integration.
