Defense Department sets up its own SourceForge

DoD has set up their own open source portal. This seems similar to what the biosurveillance folks have been thinking of configuring.

From the article linked above...
"Despite being based on SourceForge's technology, has one significant difference: security. As David Mihelcic, chief technology officer for the Defense Information Systems Agency, told Federal Computer Week, the Department of Defense's code repository has been 'upgraded to meet DOD security requirements,' with smart cards used to provide log-in credentials."

(comically forgemil is down right now so I can't verify with my own eyes)
