A software like Sogo isn't free to develop.
For my companie the minimun 700$ support option is a beat too expensive,
but I'm certain that some of us can subscribe for an option without
support, and just to access the repo if the cost is cheaper.
So inverse can earn some money too continue develop this tools, and the
users have a "not so much" expensive option too contribute.
My 2 cents ...

Over the past 10 years, Inverse has been developing SOGo and providing
everything (software packages, documentation, etc.) completely free of
charge. A massive number of organizations worldwide have successfully
deployed SOGo and benefit for free from the continuous enhancements of
After many months of discussion and thinking, we made the decision to
close down the public package repositories. From now on, in order to
access the production builds of SOGo for various Linux distributions,
you will need a proper support contract from Inverse. The options are
Payments can be made by credit card.
We hope that this move will help Inverse to:
* increase its investments in SOGo
* accelerate SOGo v3 evolution by adding more features (S/MIME,
alternate storage backends, etc.)
* expedite bugs fixing and small feature additions
* invest in gravitational projects
* extend its support to more Linux distributions
* create a VAR channel to resell and participate in providing support
Tying up package repositories to a support agreement is important for
us as Inverse strives to offer stellar support and we want to bring
more value for the money to each customer. Current organizations that
have a support contract with us will automatically get access to the
package repositories. Official packages also offer the advantage of
being thoroughly tested before they are released.
SOGo will continue to remain entirely Free and Open Source. The source
code will always be fully available and we will keep using the current
licenses. Nightly builds will also remain available to all, as well as
the ZEG configured with the latest software.
Thanks for your support and understanding. Together, we all make SOGo
