At the moment they say they plan to keep the Conary software free and to make money using it rather than from it.
Nobody knows what will happen in the future: maybe it will stay free; maybe it will go proprietary; maybe they'll drop it altogether. Their intentions sounds good, and if the worst happens then the licence permits forking.
Remember bitkeeper started out with a free-ish licence originally, and then they changed.
