Hello rrd tool maintainers,
I made a new object oriented rrd tool extension for PHP (code is in
http://hg.mirin.cz/phprrd/). Then I requested for an addition this one to
the php pecl repository (http://pecl.php.net). I think it's better place
for this one then
rrd repository. Pecl have integration with php manual, integrates with
pear command
for easy installation, etc.

But there is one small license problem. See the response from
current php release manager:

So Tobi (or other?) is it a problem add (or update) information for php
license 3.01 in floss doc
I hope this won't be a problem. After this correction, extension can be
added to pecl and will be available in easy pear way for all php
