I do a lot of consulting in (UK) Government. We build code in the open by default. Unfortunately we do not get many contributors with the public, but we sometimes get contributors from other departments. It's good to see use/reuse across government, it's the taxpayers money after all, we should be making the most of it. For that reason, since it is paid for by the taxpayer, we believe it should be available to them too. Some sensitive projects, of course, will have to be closed source

Certainly! If the project or some aspects of it are private, sharing that kind of info is a NO-NO. My focus here was more on the open projects(side projects and the like), though thanks for raising these concerns and gotchas! 😁
