Description: ------------ Hi, The package is now licensed under a combination of PHP 2.02 and BSD licenses. There are some problems with the PHP 2.02 license; for example it states that "This software includes Zend" and "This software includes PHP", which is not the case for this module. Would it be possible to update the license? My proposal would be to license all files under the BSD license, so the whole package gets one license, and the BSD license is a widely known liberal open source license. As (in my opinion less preferred) alternative would be to upgrade to version 3.01 of the PHP license. thanks, Thijs

This bug has been fixed in SVN. If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on by the end of next Sunday (CET). If this was a problem with the website, the change should be live shortly. Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release. Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better.
