A Senate proposal that would have required the Defense Department to make use of as a software code repository and development environment died during conference negotiations between the House and Senate.
The compromise fiscal 2013 national defense authorization bill unveiled by conferees Dec. 18 excludes language from the Senate version that would have required the use of a repository for all software code owned by the government or to which it has use rights and an official designation of DoD collaborative software development environments, "such as managed by the Defense Information Systems Agency."
