    v3 v4  
    3030    * OpenVPN Client (old/deprecated name for a prior Connect product -- less relevant once removed from downloads?)
    3131  * GPL OpenVPN can be either a server/client: this may need to be highlighted better on community pages
     32
     33* Fixing the product confusion (Ideas/Solutions)
     34  * Ideas?
     35
     36* Forum confusion
     37  * The image banner on the forums states "OpenVPN" "Community Support Forum"
     38  * However, the non-free forums and their sub-forums are shown here, still with the same banner
     39  * This confuses namespaces, products, and ownership in a few ways:
     40    * It makes the closed and EULA-bound software look like a community product that the community supports
     41    * Users actually wanting commercial products/support will find that the "OpenVPN.net" link (correctly) takes them to the "Community" index page
     42    * The distinction and understanding moving between FOSS and commercial support forums is nearly unnoticable if a user isn't already familiar with the product names
     43
     44* Fixing the forum confusion (Ideas/Solutions)
     45  * Split the corp (AS/Connect/PrivateTunnel/etc) forums off from the FOSS ones
