"Open source" is the slogan of rejecting our philosophy and our values.
What we advocate is free software, a totally different idea.

See https://gnu.org/philosophy/open-source-misses-the-point.html
for more explanation of the difference between free software and open
source.  See also https://thebaffler.com/salvos/the-meme-hustler for
Evgeny Morozov's article on the same point. 

At the practical level, nearly all open source programs are free
software, but there are a few exceptions.  We cannot take for granted
that auth-source-xoauth2 is free software, merely knowing that it is
open source.

What is the license of the source code of auth-source-xoauth2?
I wonder if we want to integrate it with ELPA, or Emacs itself.

Are you the author of auth-source-xoauth2?
