Vulnerability Discovery and Remediation Open Source Hardening Project

From Bruce Schneir we learn that The U.S. government's Department of Homeland Security plans to spend $1.24 million over three years to fund an ambitious software auditing project aimed at beefing up the security and reliability of several widely deployed open-source products.

This is terrific news. As Schneier points out, this will provide a terrific incentive to develop open source software.
