Government Forge is a new website that appears to be an offshoot of the SourceForge Leopard project. Its stated mission is:
...providing free and open source software to state and local governments. This site owes its inspiration to School Forge. Our primary objective involves providing a place for you to find and download software for use in your organization. By facilitating the use of standards based products we hope to eliminate duplication of efforts and costly licensing fees while encouraging innovation at the state and local level.

Have you used Government Forge? Thoughts? Opinions?
I understand that Project leopard (http://leopard.sourceforge.net) resulted from Government Forge.
I took a look at the Leopard project page. However, I am still not clear on what exactly the project hopes to deliver. Can you shed some light on the subject for me and others (since I also couldn't find contact information)?
