Re: [PEAR-QA] PHP License

He's referencing the passage that mentions that you can't use "PHP" in your package name. If you called it "BB of PHP" it would be fine.

I don't quite follow you here. PhpBB2 is licenced under the GNU GPL.
Reading the PHP licence, the only way it could be bound to the terms of tha licence is when it was derived from PHP itself. I don't think you can call something programmed in PHP "derived from PHP". I'm curious how you
think phpbb violates this licence, so we can resolve the problem.
