What do you expect FreeRADIUS (or other free software) developers 
to provide?

Yes, some people always ask to be spoon-fed and want others to 
solve just their next problem without any costs. But does that 
make sense?

IMO when using free software you should try hard not to waste 
upstream developers' spare time because they better use that for 
implementing new features, fixing bugs etc.

Ciao, Michael.
