Sourceforge Project

The Public Health Informatics Research Grid now has a sourceforge project. It is available at:

If you go to this page, you will see very little as it is brand new. As the lab team develops software, it will be tracked and stored on this site until we can migrate over to dedicated infrastructure.

For developers out there, the (empty for now) SVN repository is at

To answer John Stinn's valid call for the "public health so what" of this post. This project gives us a location available to all the participants in the research grid to post, review and comment on software issues (bugs, change requests, enhancements), store related documents and directly collaborate over how best to build public health informatics (mission) related services on top of the grid connectivity in place. This project on sourceforge is also the first step along the "open source way" as all software on it is available via the Apache license.
