Australia’s secret menace to software developers

Australia may consider modifying its law that authorizes secretly menacing any software developer in the world with punishment for refusing to insert a backdoor on Australia’s command. The decision not to menace employees individually would remove one of the many menacing aspects of this law.

Nonetheless every free software contributor would still be a target.

For this reason, I urge all free software developers to stay away from Australia.

A country willing to prosecute a whistleblower secretly and conceal his name cannot be trusted to follow any norms of decency.
