Open Source code from the White House!

White House contributes to open-source project, GCN (Apr 22, 2010).

Much of the [White House website] is already open source as part of the Drupal project…. Today’s release [of open source code for Whitehouse.gov] adds custom code to Drupal, making the White House a participant in open-source development.

The release adds four modules to enhance three key characteristics: scalability, communication and accessibility.
