An actual, real, major government (France) is using end to end encrypted, non-proprietary software (Matrix), and... oof.

I try not to say this because, hey, open source, if something is wrong I should fix it myself, but...

Matrix *isn't* good. We're blowing our chance to make government more secure and transparent through FOSS software. What government will want to adopt FOSS after hearing things like this?


Slight misspeak: I'm pretty sure the French government isn't using end to end encryption. That would be bad for transparency. Client <--> Server is good enough (TM).
