This is a misinterpretation of our intent. As we've said repeatedly in
the past, any restricted distribution of our products would apply to
*layered* products and to other items not considered part of the
PostgreSQL core, and for a period of time allowing cost recovery. No
hard two year limit, and no restricted distro on anything one might
reasonably feel entitled to receiving gratis.
Sorry for any confusion.
