The idea of an open source software to draw electoral district boundaries was mentioned by Kossack The Dead Man.
If such a software is designed and used, then it should imperatively be open source. But then, the idea does not really solve the problem: it is merely being displaced. A software is designed according to definite algorithms. We would then have at least the following two problems:
- No specific algorithm has yet been offered.
- The selection of an algorithm over another one would itself be the target of political wrangling.
