Satoshi Nakamoto is widely spoken of as being the first committer to bitcoin.
Yesterday I ran
gource on the bitcoin repo for fun and was surprised to see that the first commits were by 'sirius-m', or Martti Malmi.
Was there a previous repo in another svn tool and did Martti just do the first commit in git?
It really looks like Martti is the initial committer if you look at the git repo on Github...
