Data.gov

Data.gov is an open data website created by the U.S. General Services Administration that is based on two robust open source projects: CKAN and WordPress. The data catalog at catalog.data.gov is powered by CKAN, while the content seen at Data.gov is powered by WordPress.

This repository provides the issue tracker for all code, bugs, and feature requests related to Data.gov. Currently the repository is only used for source version control on the code for the WordPress template, but you will also find pointers to the relevant CKAN code and additional resources documented below.
