White House contributes open source accessibilty code
By Peter Korn on Apr 22, 2010
As announced yesterday in the White House technology blog, Dave Cole and his team have developed several additions to the open source Drupal website content management system (which is used to run http://www.whitehouse.gov). Specifically, one of their contributions is the module Node Embed, which contains explicit support for making media accessible on Drupal-based websites.
As stated by Dave Cole in his blog posting:
To my knowledge, this marks the first time that any arm of any government has formally contributed open source accessibility code to an open source project. And in this case, as noted in the Node Embed source code viewing interface, "all code is licensed under the GNU General Public License, version 2 or later".
