Too bad the German pirate party is but a joke at this point, I don't know how that happened
@Gargron Same things goes to French one from what I heard…
@Gargron Not sure that'd help, government IT projects are always a disaster
The taxpayers get to use roads, right? If the taxes paid for the software, taxpayers should be able to see and verify what has been produced with it - the source code must be publicly available.
@Gargron Well… maybe that works for Germany but in other countries there is tolls on highways. (mostly because they are made by corporations I think… damn I hate this.)
I am worried that in 2017 somebody in the government could still think that open source means insecure because people can see the code.
@Gargron oddly enough, for once I can give the shitshow of a country I live in as a possitive example. 🙂
@Gargron in the US at least it is more reasonable to trust your activity at a casino is secure than your voting activity for this reason.
