    I'm just going to throw this out there again, even though i think i've mentioned this one other place.

    I think its ABSOLUTELY IMPERATIVE that the built in Sitefinity 3.0 modules include full source code.  I know that with just the News module in Sitefinity 2.7, I often had to make customizations such as adding fields or changing the business logic for our clients.  I think if the modules in 3.0 do not include full source, we'll be in a tight situation where we'll have to throw them out and write something similar from scratch if the client wants us to do anything more complicated than skinning them.

    Also, having several different modules to look at will help a lot in learning how to write custom modules ourselves.

    Hi Fregas,

    Thank you for reminding us about the Open Source Modules. Your inquiry has already been forwarded to our Sales & Marketing department and we had a few discussions on this issue. Most probably we will ship some of our modules as Open Source Module but at this stage we cannot provide any accurate information as to what this module will be and when it will be available. As soon as we take any decision on this issue, we will post an announcement in our support forum.

    Sincerely yours,
    Bogdana Ivanova

    Understood.

    i just wanted my two cents heard.  It really limits our ability to server our clients using the built-in modules if they are not open source.
