Sakai source code can also be checked out anonymously from our SVN repository. The latest development work is located in

Starting with Sakai 2.6, Sakai common services (e.g., authz, content, event, site, tool, user, etc.) have been repackaged and refactored as the Sakai Kernel (K1). In most cases, you will never have to check out the kernel manually as Sakai kernel dependencies are managed by Maven.
To checkout a stable release tag issue the following svn command from the terminal:
svn co https://source.sakaiproject.org/svn/sakai/tags/sakai-2.8.3
The latest bug fixes for a particular release can be found in our maintenance branches. Please note that certain maintenance branch fixes require database schema changes. You can check out the maintenance branch by issuing the following command from the terminal:
svn co https://source.sakaiproject.org/svn/sakai/branches/sakai-2.8.x
