You are confusing free software and open source.

Free software is the one about freedom.




You are confusing "source-available" software with "open source" software. Open source software is defined by the definition given here: https://opensource.org/osd

This license (BSL) is source-available, but it is clearly not compliant with the terms of the Open Source Definition, which Sentry acknowledges.
