Heya world,

For those amongst you who like fancy colors (and better features ;p),
I've added Chora to my server.

<copy-paste from>
Chora is our tool for viewing code repositories that are managed using
the CVS or Subversion source control systems. It aims to provide a high
degree of integration with CVS, SVN and the other Horde web-based tools.

Right now, Chora comes close to matching existing CVS-Web scripts
feature for feature, and provides a solid base for future development.
Some exciting new features include a visual branch viewing tool, which
intelligently displays the branch history of a given file. Branches have
traditionally been a source of confusion when using CVS, and this
feature aims to make it a bit clearer and easier to use.

Chora is designed from the ground-up with customisability in mind, since
Version Control Systems are used in a variety of different ways. Because
of this, all the repository manipulation logic is abstracted away in our
VC library module. The main PHP scripts are simple HTML rendering
scripts, while the complex repository logic is hidden away in the
library. This library can be used for a variety of other uses, such as
searching for commits, graph generation, change collation, etc (all
features planned for eventual inclusion into Chora).
