I have seen some people are messing around concepts. Open source is not free software (or libre software which I prefer to use as free can stand for both "freedom" or "free of charge"). Open source is just that, everyone can see the source. Libre software is that and more: use it for any purpose, see the source and change it to suit your needs, redistribute copies and improve the program and share your improvements.

I think the ideal would be Gallaxy to be libre software, but if not it should be at least open source.

No, it is not.

Sorry, I'd have to do a little research before posting, I didn't know that open source allowed derived works. But my main point is that libre software is a much wider concept.

The two concepts you mention let you use the software in the forms you say.
And, by the way, some people here name FOSS (Free Open Source Software) that is the union of the two: Free Software + Open Source Software (o como tú los conoces: Software libre y Software de código abierto).
