Scavnet has been re-released here at RPI, completely rewritten in Ruby on Rails 2.3.4. If you are interested, you can check it out at RPI here: http://scavnet.myrpi.org.
We initially launched this application as part of the MyRPI suite of applications back around 2007-2008. During its initial launch, the code still had a few bugs that needed addressing and it never really took off on campus. As we work to redesign the current incarnation of MyRPI we decided Scavnet, like a few of our other applications, should live on as a stand alone application. Hopefully this separation will make it much easier for future administrators to manage and update as needed.
Additionally, we’ve open sourced Scavnet under the GNU GPL v2. You can grab a copy of the source code from Github at http://github.com/wtg/scavnet/.
