The consensus that emerged from that thread (and IIRC, David Turner
agreed after examining the claims more closely) was that the phpnuke
author's requirement is not a natural consequence of the GPL, and that
the software is not free.

The maintainer indicated that he would move the package out of main, but
this doesn't seem to have happened yet.
