The advantage of that approach is that it does not require to form
consensus whether “open core” business models are something to
encourage, discourage, or explicitly be neutral towards.

I found this old blog post on this matter:

| A simple declaration about "Open Core"
| […]
| "Open Core" has NOTHING to do with "Open Source".


It was posted to the “Board” blog.  Is this an official position?  Why
are there contradictory comments by “administrator” below it?
