- -Not only the client but also the webserver code is Free. The website -code can be found in the same tree as above, in the web -directory. - -

- -But in case we have made changes but not yet pushed them -(perhaps because we haven't done a release), and to make it easy for -anyone else who runs a copy of the website to provide everyone with -the source for their version, the website code itself lets you download -an up-to-date tarball of its -actually-running source code. +Windows PCTB v5 upload client to upload to YARRG as well.

-If you would like to run a (perhaps modified) copy of the YARRG -website it would be very easy for us to make our system send you -copies of updates submitted by users of the official YARRG client, in -the format expected by the code you'll be running.
