Subject: moodle: Moodle should depend on libnusoap-php instead of shipping it
Date: Wed, 20 May 2009 10:21:48 +0200
Package: moodle
Version: 1.8.2
Severity: normal

FYI, libnusoap-php entered Debian (

A copy of nusoap is shipped in the moodle package.

The Moodle packaging should then be updated to depend on libnusoap-php instead of shipping it.

Please check if there's no version discrepency when makeing such change, which could cause problems, though.

Best regards,

P.S.: I wasn't sure this bug should be with high severity or not, as it seems to me a policy conformance problem, although I'm not sure which precise rule would apply.

Moodle uses nusoap only if PHP version is smaller than 4 or PHP is
compiled without SOAP.
There is no need for nusoap for neither Debian squeeze or unstable -
so the library can be simply removed in the new version of the package
(it should be OK to remove it even in lenny as PHP4 is no longer
