Re: PHP License for PEAR packages

Are you sure you get this right.  When I read the license, it look
like a bad choosen license for PEAR (because of all the references to
PHP), but not like a non-free license.  The fact that the PHP name
can't be used for derived versions do not make the license non-free.
It is similar to using trademark law to block the use of a given name,
but give out all the source as free software (just look at RedHat,
providing all the source, but denying others to call their collection
of packages RedHat).

So perhaps the license is free according to DFSG?
