I wonder if we should deprecate Flash related things in favour of HTML5?

About the re-licensing of php_ext/ming.c and php_ext/php_ming.h, does
the relevant Github issue [1] mean that the re-licensing wasn't
actually ACK-ed by all the contributors of these files? This sounds
like this might be a blocker?

debian/copyright:
- various files in e.g. src/blocks/ are also copyrighted by Klaus
Rechert, not just the specific stanzas you've listed in d/copyright
- perl_ext/SWF/BinaryData.pm:# Copyright (c) 2009 Albrecht Kleine
- a small portion of ch/pkgcreate.ch is Copyright 2005
SoftIntegration, Inc., public domain
- java_ext/* doesn't seem to be licensed under LGPL-2.1+ as claimed by
d/copyright, but under this license instead:

This software is copyright 2001 E-Publishing Group Inc.  Permission is granted
to use the code and/or make changes to the code provided that the original
copyright and author attribution is included in each file.

The license does not make any warranty of liability, merchantability, or
fitness for any specific purpose.

Please contact the author <[hidden email]> if you have any questions
about the license or the software.

- debian/ming-fonts-{dejavu,opensymbol}.copyright not converted to
DEP-5; that's fine, although it's worth pointing out that
ming-fonts-opensymbol.copyright has an unversioned symlink to the
LGPL.

There's a variety of other things that can be done to
improve/modernize the package, e.g. DEP-3 patch headers, conversion of
d/rules to dh shorthand, etc., but I suppose you want to tackle the
copyright/licensing issues as that's what got the package removed from
testing in the first place?

Regards,
Vincent

That appears to be a non-free license as there is no clause allowing
distribution? Please remove ming from mentors until this is clarified
as we don't have a license to distribute it.

I've just updated the list few hours ago, just 2 missing contributors, 4
commits.  Not sure that commits in question are legally significant and
can block relicensing.  Opinions? [also CC'ing d-legal]

Thanks for spending time on d/copyright.
Just fixed what you pointed out in git.

Now I know that even binaries can have their own copyright file, which
replaces global one (always good?). Fixed in git.

Neither a clause prohibiting it. Does it really make it non-free? Any
reference?

BTW getting rid of java extension would not be a problem, currently not even
packaged.

Copyright law does not allow distribution by default. It doesn't make
it non-free, it makes it non-redistributable, even in the non-free
portion of Debian.

> BTW getting rid of java extension would not be a problem

Great, please do ASAP as you have made mentors.d.n violate the law.

I guess unstable has been violating it since years then. And
snapshot.d.o will keep doing it even after next upload. Removed.

IANAL, so my opinion doesn't actually matter. :)

If you want an authoritative yes/no regarding whether this is legally
acceptable or not, debian-legal is the wrong place; you should be
asking the ftpmasters directly instead.

I don't actually know anything about ming (and the Debian ming
packages); are php_ext/ming.{c,h} actually used to build the binary
packages? Can they be removed just like java_ext?

Regards,
Vincent

They can, they are both extensions but php one is packaged as php5-ming
(java_ext is not) and its popcon is around 2000.

 https://qa.debian.org/popcon.php?package=ming

[ CC'ing [hidden email] ]

Hi ftpmasters,

question is: Ming PHP extension (see #752629) has been relicensed in
both upstream git repo and latest tarballs released few days ago. Should
Debian be concerned about upstream contributors who haven't expressed
any agreement (yet) with license change?

Thanks for your time.

Looks good to me, so I guess the only remaining blocker is to clarify
the licensing situation of those php bindings. Please ping me once you
hear back from ftpmaster.

I just shared a g+ conversation between Sandro Santilli, the only active
ming developer and Steve Alberty, the only missing copyright holder.
I'd consider his words as an approval. Unfortunately since then May
20th, he's been pinged many times, no replies.

Errr, unless ftpmasters consider that sufficient for re-licensing
purposes, no. I don't mean to question your word, but a screenshot of
a SMS(?) message purportedly showing Steve Alberty's agreement with
the re-licensing (which nobody else can verify) is not replaceable
with a public statement made by Steve himself that can be directly
attributed back to him.

Regards,
Vincent
