Welcome! This repository is a collection point for all Code.gov repositories.
Code.gov is a program and technical platform with a website and API promoting good practices in code development, collaboration, and reuse across the U.S. Federal Government. Code.gov provides tools and guidance to help federal agencies implement the Federal Source Code Policy (FSCP). Code.gov aggregates an inventory of the federal government's custom code to promote reuse between federal agencies. Code.gov provides tools to help the government and the public collaborate on open source projects.
All of our work is open source and we encourage you to take a look and contribute to our projects by submitting a pull request, a Github issue, or commenting on existing issues and pull requests. If you are unsure as to where an issue should live, please use the GSA/code-gov repo as a catch all.
