Last summer, the US government laid out the ground rules for a policy requiring the release of source code for federally-funded websites, apps, and other software projects. The new rules, called the Federal Source Code policy, include a mandate for federal agencies to open source at least 20% of the code they develop over the next three years. These changes, as spelled out in the policy, promise to overhaul how the government interacts with vendors on technology projects.
For a great synopsis on the policy, and what it means to sell software to the federal government with the policy, click here.
