it's a short article, so:
The White House - the seat of the US presidency - has announced that it is releasing some of its improvements to the Drupal content management system. "By releasing some of our code, we get the benefit of more people reviewing and improving it. In fact, the majority of the code for WhiteHouse.gov is already open source as part of the Drupal project. The code we're releasing today adds to Drupal's functionality in three key ways." It is nice to see that the president's office cares about such things.
