Tux Paint Git Repository
The various source and data files for Tux Paint are available via "Git". ("Git" is a 'distributed version control system,' which lets developers and users alike get access to the source-code to a project, and download any changes incrementally.)
What you'll find in Git is the current code that developers are working on. It may be incomplete or unstable. If you're looking for a stable release, download the latest source release, or a pre-compiled version for your favorite platform.
