[erlang-questions] US DOD Certification of Erlang?

IMHO, open source may introduce security risks that might be very dificult
to quantify. Maybe a sound approach would be to see if they ever certified
any open-source environment (how's Java doin', for example) and see if it is
even possible. But I have a strong feeling that DoD would not certify
something that does not have a "Made in U.S.A." tag, woulld they? ;-) I
mean, just think about it -- if they can run it, so can Russia, Iran...
where's the competitive advantage?
