Hello Maccampus (is it your real name?),

The BELPIC tokend source code is licensed under Apple Public Source
License Version 2.0. [1]
So as long as the Belgian Government Agency respect the licence that is fine.

Why do you think there is a problem here?

> Hello,
> The Belgian Government Agency (Belpic) who is in charge of making software

> They have not informed you of their changes & their changes are not added to

> I want to inform you about these changes in hope that you can add them to

> I hope you can make them in cooperation with you deliver the latest version

> Thanks for making them setting things right.
