       There is broad and general confusion between free
       software and open source. 

Moreover, there are two distinct meanings to "open source".
One is about licensing, and the other is about engineering 
techniques.  The former is antagonistic to the Free Software Movement,
the latter supportive.  That's why I try to remember to distingiush
"open source processes" from "open source code" and the putative "open
source community"
