[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]

At <>
ff., the debian-legal mailing list discusses PHPNuke, which is nominally
under the GPL but whose author has made additional statements regarding
the meaning of the GPL for his app.  Consensus was reached that these
additional statements leave PHPNuke's license incompatible with the
DFSG.  At 
the maintainer agreed that he would upload the package to non-free.
However, after two months' passing, this has not yet been done.

Please remove the package from the main archive.  It does not belong
there, and I don't see any reason to wait for a new upload to non-free
before resolving this matter.

We believe that the bug you reported is now fixed; the following
package(s) have been removed from unstable:

   phpnuke |     6.0-10 | source, all

Note that the package(s) have simply been removed from the tag
database and may (or may not) still be in the pool; this is not a bug.
The package(s) will be physically removed automatically when no suite
references them (and in the case of source, when no binary references
it).  Please also remember that the changes have been done on the
master archive ( and will not propagate to any
mirrors ( included) until the next cron.daily run at the

Packages are never removed from testing by hand.  Testing tracks
unstable and will automatically remove packages which were removed
from unstable when removing them from testing causes no dependency

removed from the Bug Tracking System.  Please check all open bugs and
close them or re-assign them to another package if the removed package
was superseded by another one.

Thank you for reporting the bug, which will now be closed.  If you
have further comments please address them to
