The KolibriOS developer team makes use of a central SVN source code repository.
Not only the KolibriOS kernel and its drivers, but also almost all known open-source program and library can be found on this system.

The repository is located at svn:// and can also be browsed through

There are also read-only repository mirrors (only for checkout, no commits) for git:,
