Re: Project is free for users, no source code
So may be I missed something. The license of the software is "Freeware". And from Wikipedia ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freeware ) freeware is "...computer software that is available for use at no cost or for an optional fee.[1] Freeware is often made available in a binary-only, proprietary form, thus making it distinct from free software."

So what is the problem?

We're conflating different senses of the word "free". This web service is free as in beer (3. (3) complimentary, costless, free, gratis, gratuitous -- (costing nothing; "complimentary tickets"; "free admission")) but it's source code is not free .1. (6) free, liberate, release, unloose, unloosen, loose -- (grant freedom to; free from confinement)

Sure, it's free if you know German and want to use their website. There's no source code and it's definitely non-free.
