Hi all:

Just wanted to get your feedback on something especially related to the
recent thread on GPL licensing and plugins that are not GPL (not) being
including in Extend.

I just came across this plugin (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/pics/)
for a client who wants me to add features but it appears that it is not GPL
(no reference to license in the ZIP file) and more importantly it appears
that the core code has been encrypted with Zend Guard ("include/lib.php").

Based on the discussion it would seem this component should not be on
Extend, right?
