A whole new GitHub Universe

Last night, the one millionth git repository was created on GitHub. That is a heck of a lot of repositories.

Since we first launched, there have been a lot of interesting code filling those repositories, including projects like jQuery, Erlang/OTP, Ruby on Rails, curl, node.js, Redis, CakePHP, and an amazing amount of other great public and private projects.

There's been a lot of interesting gists made, too — they're full-fledged repositories, after all! — from spreading the word about RubyGems' move to piping Apple live event streams to a Campfire room to gists that create gists to GitHub matchmaking.

Thanks for choosing GitHub. Onward to ten million!
