Melanie Chernoff, Public Policy Manager for Red Hat, posted a story on opensource.com about the recent Open Source for America awards handed out at the Government Open Source Conference. Chernoff draws special attention to the White House's commitment to open source and says, "But, of course, the migration of whitehouse.gov to an open source platform (Drupal) was one of the biggest open source stories in the federal government over the past year, so it's probably not a surprise that it won the award for Outstanding Government Deployment." Check out her post for a link to the acceptance video and her thoughts on contributions our government is making to open source.
