Access to source code from NZ Government portal

A while back I requested (via OIA) access to the government web portal newzealand.govt.nz

The reply is attached. It seems my students can access and reuse the code as required without any issues.

    And we can access the source code by just using View Source function in most browsers. That is good enough for me at present, however I want to use code from any government web site as appropriate.Will pursue when I get a chance.

    Does that mean that you can gain a copy of the content database as well?

      I did not ask for content of database. In effect you can see this anyway by searching the site. I may at some stage be interested in the PHP and database schemas however not at this time. All I was interested in was the right for my students to legally use any HTML/CSS they viewed on the site.

    No. It was an email and was to a contact within DIA.
