The license was only changed for drbdmanage. Kernel and drbd-utils are
still under the old license.

These companies you are talking about can talk to LINBIT, for example
for a partner agreement. Yes, already happened.

If you are a private user, in the end nothing changed for you. You can
use, patch, package drbdmanage and everything is as before. If you are a
company and you provide commercial support/commercial trainings and make
money out of that support business, then I think it is fair to give back
a bit to the people that wrote the stuff you are making money with.
