For the past few years, we have seen a lot of discussions around the concept of the Software Supply Chain. These discussions started around the time of LeftPad and escalated with multiple incidents in the past few years. The problem of all the work in this domain is that it forgets a fundamental point.

The European Commission has plans to make sure every open source developer is classified as a supplier though, in the Cyber Resilience Act - see https://www.internetsociety.org/blog/2022/10/the-eus-proposed-cyber-resilience-act-will-damage-the-open-source-ecosystem/

The Commission and the Parliament have a couple of hare brained schemes to regulate the internet on the go, any of which on their own would break critical features.

All about open source! Feel free to ask questions, and share news, and interesting stuff!
