The Scantegrity voting system source code is maintained using the Subversion version control system. From the free book about Subversion:

"Subversion is a free/open-source version control system. That is, Subversion manages files and directories over time. A tree of files is placed into a central repository. The repository is much like an ordinary file server, except that it remembers every change ever made to your files and directories. This allows you to recover older versions of your data, or examine the history of how your data changed. In this regard, many people think of a version control system as a sort of “time machine”."

The subversion repositories are located here:

Everyone should be able to browse the current revision of the repositories using the link above. If not, please submit a bug.

To download the latest version of the source directly to your hard drive you can use one of the following methods:

  1. Windows users may use TortoiseSVN to check out a working copy of the repository.
  2. If you install the "command line tools" for Subversion, you can checkout a working copy of a repository in a directory called "scantegrity" with the following command:
svn checkout scantegrity
