Description Olly Betts 2012-06-28 07:05:44 UTC
Fedora has started packaging Xapian's PHP bindings:

http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/gitweb/?p=xapian-bindings.git;a=commit;h=d557cb7c4b97a5915f04db0c5dfc0a27c9b3b0c7

However, these currently combine code under GPLv2+ and the PHP 3.01 licences, which are incompatible - you can't legally distribute binary packages of the result:

This is the reason why I didn't enable them in the past. See http://trac.xapian.org/ticket/191 for the upstream discussion.

Yeah, you need to disable the PHP bindings because of this licensing issue. Sorry.
