The purpose of this project is to complete the software needed by OVC for their open voting demonstration at LinuxWorld, which will be held this August 4-7 in San Francisco.
The software should consist of a bootable CD based on Ubuntu 8.04 that contains the complete voting machine application. Hardware specs for the machines is still to be determined. Those specs should be added to these requirements as soon as they are available.
The main application will be based on the latest version of pvote (http://pvote.org/), with a custom ballot definition file. A simple method of creating new pvote-compatible ballot definition files (from scratch) must be provided. The method must be simple enough that an average sixth grader can do it.
OVC's current demo disk can be found at http://www.openvotingconsortium.org/ad/ovcdemo5.iso. This disk should be used as the basis for all development on this project.
Alan Dechert, President and CEO of the Open Voting Consortium, is assuming the roles of Project Manager and QA Lead. This project can not be accepted without his approval.
The deliverable must include a burnable CD image for the disk that meets all of the above requirements, plus all source files and scripts necessary to produce the disk image.
