How to vet potential software.
We are an Australian Political Party and our software could be used to make decisions for our country. It is VERY important that the software is secure.
A number of people feel the web platform should be open source. Potential software providers must declare their position.
We need a platform that matches Australia's political structure. At the moment SOL is a Federal (all of Australia) political party. In Australia we also have State and Local government politicians, so would the potential platform be able to suit this situation?
In the Australian Federal Parliament we have 2 parliamentary groups. The Senate and The House of Representatives. This is where our initial interests lie. At the very least the platform must be able to meet these conditions.
