https://github.com/facebook/connect-js hasn't recieved a meaningfull update in months, meanwhile Facebook has pushed new JS/CSS to production nearly every week. This project aims to provide a useful resource to developers who are working with Facebook's JS SDK and would like to see what has changed recently.
My server runs a nightly cronjob that downloads the latest http://connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js and the accompanying all.css, de-minifies them, and push any changes to github.
The script does not commit if only the timestamp at the top has changed.
To run your own copy (which I recommend), you'll need to fork the github project, test the shell script, and then set up an appropriate crontab. Mine looks like this:
MAILTO="nathan@[my_site].com" # m h dom mon dow command 0 5 * * * /home/nfriedly/facebook/connect-js/./update_fb_github.sh > /dev/null
This setup sends me an email if there were errors, but not if everything worked successfully.
The CSS Tidy wrapper requires php5-cli:
sudo aptitude install php5-cli

This is obviously not endorsed or supported by Facebook - if it was, they'd probably update their own github account.
https://github.com/tomwaddington/facebook-js-sdk is a similar project that gets updated 3 times per day.
