@license tag removal in xmlrpc.php
|Reported by:||hakre||Owned by:|
File /xmlrpc.php is labeled as being GPL v2 licensed. This is incompatible to our license (broken).
The file/code as been labeled as "GPL v2" in  25 May 2008. It was not tagged with any specific license before that date.
The file was added in  by michelvaldrighi (a projects developer) 23 May 2004. The code in //xmlrpc.php extends code of Third-Party-Code in the IXR Package that just had been added in  shortly before.
The adding of the PHPdoc @license tag in  / #7037 was wrong because of this: if the code is by a project contributor, it must have been under the projects license (naming GPL v2 here would break that so it can not be GPL v2) or it is considered a derivate of the added code (because it extends from it), but then it must have been under the same license as the IXR class which is currently known not to be GPL v2.
I'm just for reverting leaving all other considerations aside.
