Control: affects -1 = dolibarr moodle
Control: noowner -1
Control: retitle 718585 RFP: php-excel -- Read, Write and Create Excel documents in PHP
Control: retitle 487558 RFP: php-ole -- PEAR Package for reading and writing OLE


Since ownCloud recently decided not to ship PHPExel anymore, I lost
interest into packaging it. Please note that OLE is DFSG-incompatible
anyway, and while one of the two copyright holders, Christian Schmidt,
would be happy to relicense the parts that he has written, all attempts
to get in touch with the initial author, Xavier Noguer, have failed so

Keeping the bugs open for the time being, especially since the code is
currently embedded in dolibarr and moodle.
