Have a gander at la République's open-source inner workings

The release happened as a result of a decree of Open Government from 30 October 2019 after the French government joined the Open Government Partnership in April 2014. After two years of work, the site hit version 1.0 on Wednesday.

This really allows further re-use of publicly funded code, and also serves as a boost for their own small businesses who want to make use of it for themselves or to serve their customers.

Yes certainly hope so as governments are not in competition with each other as businesses, and have so much they can share and improve upon for all their citizens.

An of course France has been very supportive of the Matrix network too, running their own instance.
