He is keeping the binaries and source bundled together,
but is only distributing those *bundles* to people who pay.

To some, the word 'code' is synonymous with 'source',
but sometimes programmers (such as Miles) use the
word 'code' to mean 'binary'.

For example:
"free to further distribute all source and binary code"

This should probably read:
"pay $X more for the binary+source during alpha and beta".

What Miles is doing is temporarily withholding the bundles
of binary+source from the general public; only distributing
them to people who actually pay.

Those who pay could also distribute their copies

This is a strategy to get people to pay *early* for work that
is not yet complete.

Paying before production is a profoundly important step
toward solving the mystery of how to compensate those
who want to build a Libre Planet.
