France confirms that Matrix (and Riot) is the basis for their upcoming secure communication app for official government use, and will be 100% FOSS! Exciting times :D
@howl hopefully that's the story of how a government forced us to make damn sure Matrix can scale successfully to government-scale levels ;P
nothing more excited than becoming assimilated into the state
@zeezeemoomoo pretty sure we're not getting assimilated here :P
.@matrix the switch to using non-commercial technologies is the best evidence that Macron's government is probably not corrupt. Nobody would believe a FOSS project bribed the them to be chosen as a contractor :-)
@matrix Esta noticia es la caaaañññaaaaaaa.....
En su FAQ explican todo en términos claros con enlaces técnicos https://matrix.org/docs/guides/faq.html#how-secure-is-this
@mangeurdenuage we are. so far it looks good though :)
This is crazy indeed! I'm quite surprised, although the French public sector has some history of using Free Software, that such still geeky FOSS is being deployed here!
Is the French government providing any funding support for Matrix. They could surely send the project on leaps and bounds!!!
@ster we're getting some indirect support in exchange for prioritising some dev and advising on how best to deploy. it's certainly helping to keep us on the right track and everyone benefits from the work :)
Sounds good. Hope it goes well!
