commercial vendor of OpenVAS and at the same time continue to provide a
transparent GPLed solution to the community. The first idea is to derive a
"Community Edition" from our GSM ONE to replace the "OpenVAS Demo VM". This
will make it far easier to try out OpenVAS at no costs and without any
obligations and at the same time provides a clear hint about the commercial
