Answers is powered by OSQA, an open source Django (Python). You can download that. Hang on while I find a link for you.
I think this is what you need, http://wiki.osqa.net/display/docs/Downloading+OSQA</span<>>
Thanks for the link. Since https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/ANSWERS exists I somehow assumed that Atlassian developed Answers themselves...
The link is broken in the original answer. Link should be:
Answers is powered by OSQA - you can see the link in the footer.
We've done a fair amount of customization to it, so if after looking at OSQA you're interested in Answers specifically, repost here and we'll start a side conversation via email.
Right now, we've forked OSQA's main trunk, and won't release it publicly until we've put all our customizations into their own module. It seems like we'd be being a bad open source citizen to release a fork without an easy way to remove the Atlassian-specific customizations. We're going to focus on bug fixes, improvements to the UI, and integrations with plugins.atlassian.com, developer.atlassian.com, and support.atlassian.com first.
Opening the source is part of our values (Open Company, no BS), but it'll take some effort to get there. For now, please use OSQA's main distribution. We'll release the Atlassian package when we can. We're contributing bug fixes back to OSQA when we find them.
Any further update on making Answers available. It is much nicer than OSQA and we'd love to be able to take advantage of some of the customizations.
Update... Nevermind. I see the answer to the question https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/35106/is-atlassian-answers-available-for-my-company-i-d-like-to-use-it-as-a-knowledge-base tells me you've put the code on bitbucket!
Thanks for the push Jeff. I've gotten past any security issues, but I'm not yet there with stripping Atlassian from the theme. The trick here is that the customizations are such that you'd either (1) have to do a bunch to fix OSQA's default theme or (2) have to roll back a bunch of things in the Atlassian theme (like the header, footer, email templates etc which are all Atlassian-specific). I'm curious - Are you running OSQA yourself, with your own theme?
As a Belgian, beer-lover and home brewer, beer is one of my great passions. I love the fact that with just a few ingredients (usually just water, hop and malt) you can create so many different tastes...
