No, I haven't seen it before. But it looks very similar
(almost identical) to freshsource.org, which I knew before.
In fact I decided to create SVNews when I saw freshsource
because I wanted something that displayed more information
on one page, but in a much more compact and useful (IMHO)
way. Another reason was that I wanted to exploit the
advantages of using the SVN protocol directly: SVNews
accesses the SVN server itself, so there's almost no delay
between a commit and its arrival on the SVNews page.
On the other hand, freshsource (and apparently freshbsd,
too) tries to parse the e-mail messages generated from
commits. This is sub-optimal, in my opinion.
Last but not least, I was curious how difficult it would be
to write an SVN protocol application in Python. I found
out that it is trivial. :-)
It's true, freshbsd supports other projects besides FreeBSD.
Most other projects don't use SVN, so SVNews focuses on
FreeBSD (which is my main interest anyway).
On the other hand, SVNews also displays commits outside of
the main src tree, such as commits to the vendors, users
and projects branches. freshbsd doesn't display those
