This badge/banner can be used for displaying the latest (or a specific commit) for a github-project on your website.
That said I'd be happy about ideas/patches. Look at the BUGS file or the TODO or come up with something own.
To use it on your website you'll have to put this somewhere. This means the .js file as well as the .css and the lib/ and img/ directories. To adjust the width of the whole thing look inside the style.css and set it for the container-class. I know that the way to define user/repos is still somewhat cumbersome.

Q: Why is it called a badge when it's really more of a banner? A: Because I noticed that calling it banner increases the risk of it being filtered by AdBlock etc.
Q: What libs are used (and what for)? A: Prototype for .each and truncate, jQuery for jQuery.getJSON, datejs for Date.parse and md5 for md5_hex (for the gravatar). Also I learned a lot from DrNic's http://github.com/drnic/github-badges/tree.
