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.
