>>>  I am very aware of the meaning "free" here. Mauku was uploaded into the free section because there was (is) no non-free repository in Extras. However, the community insisted to close all external repositories and use Extras instead (done that). In addition, Ovi Store was not (is not, it is still beta) available for distribution channel.

Er, yeah, as far as I'm aware the process is very nearly the same. . . . I'm inclined to believe that you should probably seek to enlighten your opinions with more fact before spreading them around.
