Hi Holger,

I am reviewing your submission on behalf of Savannah, sorry for the delay.

You have most copyright headers in place, which is nice. The project seems to comply. I would recommend adding all information that you provide in the comments here to the main README file, as it might save a lot of trouble to people looking to assess license compliance of the package.

I've approved your project--welcome on board! :-)

You'll receive a mail notification with further instructions shortly.

Happy hacking!

Registration Administration

While this item will be useful to track the registration process, approving or discarding the registration must be done using the specific Group Administration page, accessible only to site administrators, effectively logged as site administrators (superuser):

Registration Details

  • Name: Braintacle
  • System Name:  braintacle
  • Type: non-GNU software & documentation
  • License: GNU General Public License v2 or later


Braintacle is an alternative administration console for OCS Inventory NG, written in PHP.

It has a simplified user interface with full gettext-based localization and supports databases other than MySQL. It offers some unique features like filtered software view, the ability to update packages and on-the-fly ZIP compression.

All objects are accessed through a documented API which can be used in other PHP applications as well. A sample application - a command line package builder - is included.

Other Software Required:

- PHP 5.2.4 and later (http://php.net/)
- Any webserver capable of executing PHP scripts
- Zend Framework (http://framework.zend.com/) New BSD License: http://framework.zend.com/license
- PEAR (http://pear.php.net) New BSD License: http://www.opensource.org/licenses/bsd-license.php
- OCS Inventory NG (http://www.ocsinventory-ng.org/), GPLv2: http://www.ocsinventory-ng.org/index.php?page=license
- Any Database supported by Zend Framework, like MySQL or PostgreSQL

Other Comments:

- A heavily patched version of OCS inventory NG is included in the ocsinventory directory. Upstream files don't contain the recommended copyright notices consistently, and I have not added or changed any copyright information. I have no idea how to handle this properly - If this is not OK, could you please give me a hint how to do that? I'm not the original author or otherwise associated with the OCS development team.
- A copy of Zend Framework is included in the libraries/Zend directory. The SVN repository will pull this in as an external.
- The library/PEAR directory contains a copy of some PEAR packages:
  - MDB2_Schema (http://pear.php.net/package/MDB2_Schema)
  - MDB2_Driver_oci8 (http://pear.php.net/package/MDB2_Driver_oci8)
  - MDB2, patched (http://pear.php.net/package/MDB2/)
  - MDB2_Driver_pgsql, patched (http://pear.php.net/package/MDB2_Driver_pgsql)
  - MDB2_Driver_mysql, patched (http://pear.php.net/package/MDB2_Driver_mysql).
  See the Readme.txt in the same directory for details. They have a BSD license (http://www.opensource.org/licenses/bsd-license.php), which is contained in the LICENSE file (which itself is taken from the MDB2 project). Again, I have not changed the copyright notices for the patched files.
- The file application/configs/macaddresses-vendors.txt is taken from the wireshark project (http://wireshark.org) under a different name. GPLv2 and copyright information are contained at the top of this file.
- A public SVN repository is available at https://herakles.fk15.tu-dortmund.de/svn/sindbad/trunk
