歐盟通過終結日光節約時間

看到歐盟通過終結日光節約時間的新聞:「Latest: European Parliament approves proposal to end bi-annual clock change」。

Fine Gael MEP Sean Kelly, who has been campaigning for the change, said: "I'm very pleased that after years of discussions at Committee level in the European Parliament, of which I'm the only Irish member, that out proposal was debated and voted on today in Parliament, and that Parliament accepted our proposal to ask the European Commission to come forward with a recommendation that we would end the bi-annual clock change."

其中藍色是目前還有在實施的地區,其他都是已經終止的:

主要是因為日光節約時間對於現代社會的好處愈來愈少的關係吧... 早期在歐美國家很盛行,現在歐洲決定廢止這個制度,應該會讓美國再次討論起來。

歐洲議會嘗試撥款支援 Open Source Software 的 Bug Bounty 計畫

Hacker News 上看到歐盟議會試著以 Bug Bounty 計畫支援 Open Source Software 的消息。這次看到的是 VLC:「VLC: Bug Bounty Program - Get Rewards through HackerOne」。

The European Parliament has approved budget to improve the EU’s IT infrastructure by extending the free software security audit programme (FOSSA) and by including a bug bounty approach in the programme.

這還蠻特別的... 由官方經費贊助 open source 的計畫,除了 VLC 外,重點會在成效以及後續還有哪些被贊助。

歐洲議會通過網路中立條款

前幾天歐洲議會通過了網路中立條款:「European Parliament passes strong net neutrality law, along with major roaming reforms」,條文內容的 PDF 可以在這裡看到。

PDF 的左側是 Text proposed by the Commission,右側是 Amendment,可以看到「網路中立」被清楚定義:

The principle of "net neutrality" means that traffic should be treated equally, without discrimination, restriction or interference, independent of the sender, receiver, type, content, device, service or application

然後下面圍繞著網路中立的主題規範了許多電信服務提供商的行為,並且保障公民的上網權利。另外還要求各國的電信主管機關制定檢舉程序,讓公民可以很容易檢舉。
