Take it with a grain of salt.

RMS intentionally confuses the terms free and open, because in his mind it isn't free until it's open; to him, free means freedom. The classic example is always "free" as in "free beer" vs "free" as in "free speech"; same word, different meaning.

The solution of this problem is trivial and is left as an exercise for the reader.
