GitLab continue to out-innovate Github, which is just wanking around with breaking the UI these days
‘The algorithm of Lamport timestamps is a simple algorithm used to determine the order of events in a distributed computer system. As different nodes or processes will typically not be perfectly synchronized, this algorithm is used to provide a partial ordering of events with minimal overhead, and conceptually provide a starting point for the more advanced vector clock method. They are named after their creator, Leslie Lamport.’ See also vector clocks (which I think would be generally preferable nowadays).
