The Forge.mil site is based on SourceForge.net, a public site that hosts
thousands of open-source projects.
Defense Department officials have launched a new Web site where
developers can work on open-source software projects specifically for
DOD, David Mihelcic, the chief technology officer for the Defense
Information Systems Agency (DISA), said today.
The new site, named Forge.mil, is based on the public site
SourceForge.net which hosts thousands of open-source projects, Mihelcic
said at an AFCEA Washington chapter lunch in Arlington, Va.
"It is really is SourceForge.net upgraded to meet DOD security
requirements," Mihelcic said.
