Diffing the Many Versions of the Stimulus Bill

If you've been following the trajectory of the Stimulus bill as it winds its way through the house, senate, bicameral committee, back to the house, and then on to the senate for one final vote before going to the president, you might have a bit of an interest in the following:

  • just what is in the dang bill
  • what exactly has changed between each version
Well, huzzah! Thanks to the open source version control tool Subversion, it was a rather simple task to whip together a repository of the bill and track the various changes between each version. See links below:
To check out your own version of the repository, here's your handy command:
svn co http://www.geek-pac.org/svn/stimulus-bill
And off you go!
