+ - DoD CIO issues OSS guidance->

Submitted by risacher
risacher writes: David Wennergren, the Deputy CIO of the US Department of Defense recently signed out a memo with guidance on the use of Open Source Software. Amongst other things, the memo notes that OSS is "Commercial Computer Software" as defined by US law, and directs that OSS be considered when doing market research before acquiring software, and lists reasons why OSS might be a good idea. It also lays out criteria for when the DoD should contribute back to the open source community. (Full disclaimer: I led the drafting of the memo.)
