I whole heartedly agree

I am curious as to how the updates will be released?
As this is open source, surely the source code must
be available to all.
How will this be handled?

eg: If I have a 7.3 installation and the errata stops
for public release. How then can updates be limited to
paying customers only if the source code must be available
under the GPL?

Kind regards
