Nextcloud is sending their congratulations to the German government for adopting measures to increase the use of open-source software in public IT projects, with “an eye towards Digital Sovereignty of the German government”:
We require open standards for public IT projects. Development contracts should typically be commissioned as open source, the corresponding software is generally made public. On the basis of a multi-cloud strategy and open interfaces as well as strict security and transparency requirements, we are building a public administration cloud
Good on them. Let’s hope our own government is taking notes.
