Reporters sans frontiers announced that it is launching a new project to
accept leaked docs from journalists, bloggers, dissidents, etc. It held a
hackathon last week in Paris on the topic. Does anyone know more about it,
i.e. has participated in the hackathon, have been invited to audit the
code, etc?


Overview from EDRI-gram:

Reporters Sans Frontières (RSF) is looking to take the Wikileaks path
> and will start accepting the publication of censured documents in
> October 2012 on a new dedicated platform.
> Called “We Fight Censorship”, the RSF platform will distribute censored
> documents received from journalists, bloggers or political dissidents in
> order to offer a “digital shelter” for those who, by revealing such
> documents, might be persecuted, condemned, imprisoned or even
> assassinated.
> “Thanks to a digital ultra-secured safe, the Internet
> users will be able to provide the organisation, anonymously, with
> documents affected by censorship or interdicted for publication” stated
> RSF who also added that the documents will not be published as such but
> put into context and the contents included will be verified to ensure
> the accuracy and correctness of the shared information.
> RSF already organised in 2010 an “anti-censure shelter” space for the
> protection of political dissidents, journalists and bloggers threatened
> by authorities, which allows them to surf and communicate rather safely
> by using various ciphering and anonymization tools.
> On 21 July 2012, the association organised a hackathon in order to test
> the reliability of the platform and the security of the document
> transmission system.
