Tim O'Reilly of O'Reilly Media, Inc. Tim thinks change.gov should be put under revision control to track changes. It is thought that by enabling change control we can increase accountability in our government.
The real holy grail, of course, would be to provide revision control on all government regulations, and eventually, on legislation.
I think it's a great idea and one whose time has come.
