    There was an project for the german constitution. It was abandoned, because the german gouvernment pretty almost works on paper, the rest is hot air.

    Even if they adopt git, the commits would be made by a bot or some poor fellow with messages like "changes done". No traceability whatsoever

    The ambition is too good to be realized

    @asgs Yeah you're right. If there is the possibility to shirk on responsibility or accountability, you can bet your bottom dollar they will use it.

    Honestly yes
    I read some law changes that take effect tomorrow in Germany, and their "diff" is just a list like that and it's horrible to understand

    The next step forward would be to write it in a specification language (e.g. Alloy) so you can use an analyzer to check for contradictions/weird loopholes.
