Hi all

I'm interested to know what people think about putting documentation behind a login screen, for example to offer extra documentation for paying customers.

I wonder what views you have about about giving all documentation freely available online. Do you see the restricted access to some documentation as a business opportunity or an annoyance/hinderance to the wider readership and prospects?

I don't know whether there is a yes or no answer to this but it is more about the principle.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
