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


[ CC'ing ftpmaster at d.o ]

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.
