This is just a quick note to announce that Halalan has a new mailing list for bug reports, support requests, patches, and feature requests. Head over to the Mailing Lists page to subscribe. Also, this list is the fastest way to get support.
The UP Linux Users' Group will be holding the final pre-election test/demo of the Halalan Voting System this coming March 1, 2007. It will be held at MH235 from 1pm onwards. Students of the College of Engineering are highly encouraged to attend since the system will be implemented in the coming ESC elections. See you there!
- Halalan 1.0.1 released
- How to Install and How to Use documentation
Halalan Summer Camp 2007 is now over. Here are the results of the discussions held there.
The Summer Camp started with a drawing activity. Each member of the team was given a sheet of paper wherein they designed a new UI taking into consideration the voter's ability to use a computer. The new UI will be posted soon.
The development team of Halalan was divided into three groups which will be responsible for the UI, Code Igniter version, and Ruby on Rails version.
A presentation of the current Halalan Design started the discussion for its improvement. Some of the more notable ideas are:
- audit trails
- option to enable or disable the connection of voters and votes (some elections record who voted for whom, some do not)
- password hashing on the client-side (this was implemented in the old Halalan)
- voters can have multiple units
New and Improved Documentation
The documentation of the old Halalan will be resurrected and updated to reflect the new Halalan.
