I can't be certain which program(s) you are talking about, but I think
you are referring to the free version of LanguageTool as "open source"
rather than "free".  Nearly all free programs are open source and
nearly all open source programs are free, but normally we care whather
a program is free, and we do NOT care whether it is open source.

I think you must have chosen to write "open source" there to convey a
point, but what point was it?

For any program want Emacs to incorporate or use, we insist it be
free.  Whether that program is open source is not a question we are
concerned about.

If we have free software to do further training on the neural network,
we can accept it.

Does LanguageTool use a neural network?
