This is a completely valid point. I also appreciate the "right-to-repair" comment made elsewhere.

The original intent of this clause was so that we wouldn’t have to support modified versions that were deployed to production. (As pointed elsewhere, we provide a lot of free support in Slack [0].)

But that clause was written 1.5 years ago, and a lot has changed since then. There’s an internal debate right now on whether we should remove this restriction.

So thank you for asking this question!
