* Package name: php5-ioncube-nonfree
Version : 4.0.1
Upstream Author: Ioncube
* URL: http://www.ioncube.com/loaders.php
* License: Commercial
Description: 


Many commercial PHP web applications distribute their files as ionCube 
bytecode.
To be able to execute the bytecode, a loader has to be installed as PHP 
module.

The loader is available at: http://www.ioncube.com/loaders.php (binary only)

Its license allows redistribution:

==
[...]
2 DISTRIBUTION

2.1 The Loader may be freely distributed to third parties alone or as
part of a distribution containing other items provided that this license
is also included.

2.2 The Loader may under no circumstances be branded as another product,
whether distributed or not.

2.3 Distribution as part of a commercial product is permitted provided such
distribution is in accordance with clauses 2.1 and 2.2 with respect to the
Loader.
==


While I understand the issues some folks have with closed source software, 
this piece of software is just as essential for the average webhosting 
company, as for example the Flash plug-in is for the average desktop user.

Floris Bos

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of php5-ioncube-nonfree back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 6 months.

If you are still interested in adopting php5-ioncube-nonfree, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 607847 ITP: php5-ioncube-nonfree -- Ioncube loader PHP module
 owner 607847 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <607847@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
