(Disclosure: VA Software is NewsForge's parent company) John Weathersby writes "Oxford, MS - March 26, 2003 The Open Source Software Institute (OSSI) announced today that VA Software (Nasdaq: LNUX) has joined the open-source advocacy group as a corporate member and sponsor.
OSSI (www.oss-institute.org) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote the development and implementation of open-source technologies and methodologies within the U.S. Federal government and academic communities.
Freemont, CA-based VA Software develops SourceForge Enterprise Edition, which enables organizations to rapidly jump-start an open-source development initiative by providing a single application that integrates development, collaboration and management tools with a common repository to support enhanced code re-use, versioning and resource allocation among distributed development teams.
VA Software is also the parent company of OSDN, Inc. and its affiliate websites that include Sourceforge.net, Slashdot, Freshmeat.net, Newsforge, ThinkGeek and Linux.com among others that provide the latest technology news, discussion and tools to 7 million unique visitors each month. SourceForge.net is the worlds largest open source software development website with the largest repository of open source code and applications available on the Internet. SourceForge.net provides free services to open-source developers. Currently SourceForge.net hosts more than 58,000 software development projects with nearly 600,000 registered users.
VA Software plays an important role within the IT industry and open-source community by serving as a pioneer in supporting open-source development constructs in traditional development environments through its technology, media and software foundry services, said John Weathersby, OSSI founder and chairman. OSSIs mission is to promote usage and adoption of open source within the government. Essential VA Software programs, such as SourceForge, provide an opportunity to clearly demonstrate how, where and when open-source methodologies and technologies can be effectively used within the public sector.
OSSI has proven to be an organization that is making substantial inroads in working with the Federal government, said David Appelbaum, VA Softwares Senior Vice President of Marketing. We are excited to be a part of the OSSI team and look forward to working with the organization and its members and supporters as a growing number of government programs consider open-source technologies and techniques.
The Open Source Software Institute (OSSI) is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to promote the development and implementation of open-source technologies within U.S. Federal, state and municipal government agencies and academic entities. OSSI has taken an active leadership role in open source projects within civilian government agencies as well as U.S. Defense and Intelligence communities. Additional information on OSSI is available at www.oss-institute.org.
