is the history replay in the old code repo and just hasn't been ported yet
or did google not release it.

I have been looking at the code for several hours now.  its in pretty rough
shape but good enough to run i guess. I had to fix several issues in the
code to get it to compile but it appears to be compiling correctly now.  im
not very interested in trying to get it to run yet, i just want to see how
its packaged.

but im starting to feel my way around it.  i finally found the gwt
interface and have been pulling that apart.  im mainly trying to determine
if they implemented the event bus for the save on change as a client system
or a server system.  right now it looks like both.  but i will still play
