Bug#445904: ITP: php-xml-htmlsax3 -- A SAX parser for HTML and other badly formed XML documents

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Romain Beauxis <toots@rastageeks.org>

* Package name    : php-xml-htmlsax3
  Version         : 3.0.0~rc1
  Upstream Author : Harry Fuecks 
* URL             : http://pear.php.net/package/XML_HTMLSax3/
* License         : PHP
  Programming Lang: PHP
  Description     : A SAX parser for HTML and other badly formed XML documents

This package contains files that are already present in some packages,
namely gallery, gallery2, knowledgeroot, and upstream's SPIP.

The licence of this file has been an issue since it was badly versioned
and should apply only to PHP.

But further readings of ftp-master's origianl answer revealead that
licencee is allowed to upgrade the licence to the most recent version.

However, this licence should apply to php realted packages only, not
webapps like this is the case for the packages above.

Therefore, even though the project is not maintained anymore, I plan to
package this piece of code since it seems used by many projects, and at
least we'll be able to do some QA on it more easily, which is an
important fact since this code is used to generate "safe" html code from
user's input.
