It’s been no secret that the DoD has considered open source for a long time. Consideration has finally reached adoption. The proof? A new site, based on Sourceforge.net, Forge.mil, will serve as a repository for open source, defense-related software. Anyone can join the site - so long as they have a DOD, CAC, or ECA certificate. The site currently only contains information and no code. The site itself is nothing more than the Sourceforge code updated to meet DoD standards.

Speaking of out sourcing, wasn't it just a few months back that the Air Force "out Sourced" a contract to build our refueling tankers out of the country ? That finally became a congrestional hearing and as a result the contract was recinded. Bad enough to outsource automobile manufacturer etc. much less defense contracts for our armed service equipment and technology !!! :ninja:
