      It is going to be open source, and it stands to reason that most people who would benefit from this have the ability to investigate the source code and see if there is anything malicious in there. Granted, it’s probably a bit large for a single person to look through, but I like to think that there are a lot of good developers out there who will inspect it and find that it is safe to use.

      If anything suspicious was found, it would be a BIG deal. The NSA wouldn’t be that stupid to release it as open source like that.
