>From the Reject FAQ:

| if you have a PHP add-on package (any php script/"app"/thing, not PHP itself)
| and it's licensed only under the standard PHP license. That license, up to the
| 3.x which is actually out, is not really usable for anything else than PHP
| itself. I've mailed our -legal list about that and got only one response, which
| basically supported my view on this. Basically this license talks only about
| PHP, the PHP Group, and includes Zend Engine, so its not applicable to anything
| else. And even worse, older versions include the nice ad-clause.
| one good solution here is to suggest a license change to your upstream, as
| they clearly wanted a free one. LGPL or BSD seems to be what they want.	

I see the author is @php.net, however since the copyright is to him, and not the PHP
group, they can't use the mark:
