Thank you very much, government ..

.. says practically every software developer in Oz.

How on earth is any Oz code cutter going to prove their code isn't fitted with a backdoor if that has effectively become a legal requirement? Way to go to pretty much nuke an industry, and to promote the use of non-Oz services*.

Unbelievably stupid decision IMHO.
