Bulgaria Passes Open Source Law

The government of Bulgaria is going open source. “Less than two years after my presentation titled ‘Open source for the government’, and almost exactly one year after I became advisor to the deputy prime minister of Bulgaria, with the efforts of my colleagues and the deputy prime minister, the amendments to the Electronic Governance Act were voted in parliament and are now in effect. The amendments require all software written for the government to be open-source and to be developed as such in a public repository.”
