I like it. I have done some things like this in the past, but not in as much detail as yours. Very inspiring!

Cheers. :) I have to admit as much as I would like everyone to use Labradoc, inspiring other developers to get in the habit of writing public project logs is a prime objective too--whatever they use.

I started out with just writing single line entries but because they proved so useful it encouraged me to spend a little more time writing longer entries. (Although I often end up with a whole bunch of browser tabs open as a result. :) )

When I've done it, I've done it as a status log at the bottom of the README, or in a separate file in the project. But I think your level of detail is just right: it doesn't look ridiculously time consuming, and yet it captures the real content & momentum of the project.
