   What I intended to say was: "All the other projects I was able to
   contributed to, because they have their source code open, so that
   one can get it, dig through it, hack it, contribute to, [...]".
   Probably I should have used "source available" instead of "open
   source" to avoid certain buzz-words.

Then you should have said "Free Software", since being Open Source, or
having the "source avaiable" doesn't allow for this in some cases.
Specially since somethings that are non-free (where you can't look,
modify, distribute, or run the code for whatever purpose) are included
in "Open Source", and "source avaiable".
