Thanks for the information. I haven't noticed it before because I saw various 
packages in Debian using the PHP license.
I told my sponsor to wait with the upload. I will ask him for upload when PHP 
license is DFSG compatible or tell him to drop it if the project disagree 
with the PHP license. Nevertheless i think the project should make a 
decision. Waiting for it now ...

Greetings and thanks for info
