Speaking of that...

The phpbb_seo package is under a license called RPL, according to the
COPYING file. This license  among others force us to provides the source
code of the forum if we deploy it ( even privately ) for at least for 12
months after we decided to stop use it.

That's quite a strong requirement, but that's not the only issue.

FSF say this is not compatible with GPL. ( see
http://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.html#NonFreeSoftwareLicense ,
search "reciprocal public license", there is also others reasons )

Phpbb is distributed under the GPL, and I would like to be sure there is
nothing fishy about that.
