Forge.mil Project Update #1

Enterprise Agile Planning

As promised, here is a quick rundown of where we are on the DISA forge.mil project:

  • Very good progress made on PKI-enabling the CollabNet SourceForge and SVN products
  • Initial drafts of site look & feel and content complete
  • Initial draft of ‘Community Building Plan’ complete and ready for review

There is still a lot of work to do between now and the LOA (limited operation availability) date at the end of the year, but things are moving along.  Most likely the LOA period will last a month or so to shake out both technical and social/community issues, but we hope to be well along our way in February of 2009.

The Forge.mil effort continues to get positive reviews both inside and outside of the DoD, including this recent article in the Defense Systems publication.

I’m learning a ton about what community means (and where the challenges are) to the DoD, and the single greatest weapon in my arsenal is the lowly question.  I’ve learned to ask a lot of them to adjust the process of defining this community.

Thanks for listening – I’ll chime in with more updates as we progress toward site launch.

Update – Federal News Radio (WFED – 1500 AM out of Washington, DC) recently spoke with several influential government officials, including the CTO of DISA, who mentioned the forge.mil initiative.
