Is NSA's Accumulo open source or Google knock-off?

Government Computer News, 07/20/12

A new bill on Capitol Hill could have far reaching implications for government use and development of open source platforms—potentially requiring all open source projects to "prove adequate industry support and diversification."

S. 3254, the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act, would bar the Department of Defense from using the National Security Agency's Accumulo open source software platform after September 30, 2013, unless the DoD's CIO can demonstrate either the software's industry success and uniqueness or that there are no viable commercial open source alternatives, according to a report from Wired.
