Re: PHP licence SFLC questions draft v4


First, thanks a lot to Ian for working on this draft, which (I think)
provides a nice summary of the situation around the PHP license.

That's indeed a very good point, which I already raised with Ian earlier
this month. Ftpmasters are the ones responsible for making decisions
about acceptable software licenses in Debian. The advice provided by
SFLC is extremely valuable to us, and should generally be followed, but
it's still only advice.

So I'll wait for Ftpmasters (Cced) to review and ACK the current draft
before forwarding those questions to SFLC, to ensure that the questions
accurately match and cover our concerns.
