To sum up, I hope persuading upstream to do one of following

- give permission to Debian project to package his softwares
  (like Apache Fundation for apache-1.3 woody packages [1]),
- switch license to Apache license 2.0 like [2],
- switch licens to 3-clause BSD [3] or Horde BSD-like [4],
- switch license to GPL [5] like other horde softwares.
