It's damn semantics: The project he talked about was "free to use *for* open 
source projects" (that means, if you write a free software project, you don't 
have to pay for teh hosting), but I had asked whether the project was licensed 
under free licenses (which it wasn't). 

It was a bugtracker, by the way, and I don't really like making a free project 
depend on an unfree solution for integral parts. 

(I don't like a project depending on unfree parts anywhere, but when it 
depends on unfree stuff for critical things, that's even worse). 

Best wishes,
