Submission + - Russian Federation selects open source PHP (gosuslugi.ru)

Max_W writes: The government of Russian Federation selects open source PHP programming language for its central portal www.gosuslugi.ru (short for "gosudarsvennye usugi" — state services). One even can see ".php" file extensions.

This website is being updated directly from more than 60 ministries. It will work for one year in the testing mode, but it provides even now the real forms, for example, to get a civil passport, travel passport, etc.

We were talking a lot about Russian government's plans to use Open Source OSs on desktops, but it seems it became a reality first in a server-client environment.

It is not clear to me what database is being used. But if it is MySQL this thing may work after all.
