Re: Bug#318204: ITP: php-simpletest -- Unit testing and web testing framework for PHP

I was wondering if Debian-legal could offer any insight on this matter.
I searched the mailing list archives, and found no explicit discussion
of this license. The only potentially problematic clauses I see are
those that ensure "that the original test modes be preserved".

To my untrained eye this seems to be a variation of "The license may
require derived works to carry a different name or version number from
the original software", with the exception that the original test cases
must also be provided, along with the derived works.

Could you please provide me with some official Debian advise on this
