Canada Federal Government publishes a new IT directive that mandates the use of open source software first before considering proprietary software. (See Appendix C for the relevant phrasing)

@yogthos oh, the Brazilian workers party created something similar years ago... It was before the coup of 2016 (when microsoft signed the biggest government contract since 2002). And now we elected a fascist :(

@yogthos C.2.3.8.{3,4} mandates that any new code written by the government must be open sourced as well :flan_bard:
