+ - Knowledgetree: So long, and thanks for all the free GPLed work->

Submitted by GigsVT
GigsVT (208848) writes "Knowledgetree, a formerly GPLed document management system, is now only available as a hosted service, with a hefty subscription fee. The former community site at is unreachable, and the project is no longer available on Sourceforge. An open source release from 2009 can still be obtained, but only if you fill out a sales contact form first. It seems that Knowledgetree has found the big loophole in the GPL: You can take all that community work closed, if you do it by changing into an SaaS model."
