The same (their answer I mean) will probably apply to CentOS itself, will
it? Where CentOS headquarters are situated, where CentOS team members
live? And the same will apply to majority of open source systems, many BSD
flavors will fall under the same category. My answer (to myself) is: I do
trust open source. Be it closed source, then the company ownership would
matter. But with open source, developers situated in Russia (where the KGB
is which I'm awfully scared of) have my full trust as the ones living in
US (where NSA is situated which I'm scared of no less). I though have no
idea if at all I would be able to find right argument when told something
by government bureaucrats.
