[PublicPolicy] Government Open Source Advocates

The only elections that are considered are "professional" elections for unions and others. Regarding regular elections the ANSSI and the DINUM discourages the use of electronic voting systems for security reasons.

If you have non important elections the French INRIA organization is working on an interesting project called http://www.belenios.org/  that is open-source, based on the helios open-source software.

Hope this helps,

Is there any movement toward open source election system software in France ?

I would love to hear more about https://github.com/dinsic-pim. How did it start? How did it grow? Who contributes to the project?

Dear Patrick,

Thank you very much for creating the list. Shimon, thank you very much for your message.

I work for the French government at the DINUM (direction interministérielle du numérique, https://numerique.gouv.fr  inter-agency digital services).

Regarding open-source specifically, I would like to point out our following initiatives:

-          The open-source contribution policy, developed through the open-government partnership with many other countries :

o   https://www.numerique.gouv.fr/publications/politique-logiciel-libre/ that officially delegates the authority to joint FSF and OSI for open-source licenses in the perimeter.

o   In English: https://disic.github.io/politique-de-contribution-open-source/introduction.en<https://smex-ctp.trendmicro.com:443/wis/clicktime/v1/query?url=https%3a%2f%2fdisic.github.io%2fpolitique%2dde%2dcontribution%2dopen%2dsource%2fintroduction.en&umid=0b11e99d-a9ee-4060-a423-258ee7bd16d1&auth=0552f576ef9cbf8536bffd6744e6f7ca40c5738b-fe8bc689924abc86b7808572cf6cbda8b1b3cee2>

o   And the link on github if you would like to copy / contribute : https://github.com/disic/politique-de-contribution-open-source

-          The open-source code we develop: https://code.etalab.gouv.fr/

o   With a partnership with the Software Heritage initiative : https://www.softwareheritage.org/?lang=en

-          Open-source software catalog recommended by the French administration: https://sill.etalab.gouv.fr/fr/software

-          Our internal incubator that develops exclusively open-source software : https://beta.gouv.fr/startups/

-          The #BlueHats community where we try to gather civil servants, NGO, IGO and private companies working on public interest open-source software (only in French)

-          There is one project in particular that I would like to share regarding secure instant messaging based on RIOT.im / Matrix for which we believe there could be a strong interest for international cooperation:  https://github.com/dinsic-pim

Lastly we were also in charge of elaborating the digital republic law that encourages open-source software and clearly lists source code as an "administrative document" so that it can be officially released publicly under existing open-date laws.

Please feel free to contact me directly at +33 6 701 701 78 if you have any questions. It would be a pleasure to identify common initiatives we could work on, or work on common difficulties we could face.
