Operating Environment

YakTrack will be implemented in Python 1.52. It should therefore run on any platform to which Python has been ported. We will avoid the use of platform-specific designs or code in doing so.

However, the primary operating systems we'll be using are Linux (with a kernel around 2.2.10 or higher) and Microsoft Windows. While YakTrack will be designed to interface with configuration management systems, the configuration management software used in this implementation will be CVS, the Concurrent Versioning System (an open-source version control software package supporting local and remote repositories).
