ownCloud server - exceptions for bundled libraries

I'm currently working on ownCloud for Fedora: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=858841

In the folder 3rdparty we have 6 bundled libraries left, including 3 php libs and 3 JavaScript? libs.

PHP: smb4php (single php class, newest release, 5 years old) php-when (single php class, latest commit 2 years ago, probably dead) phpass (2 files, project doesn't look too active, latest commit 20 months ago)

it seems pointless to re-package those old and abandoned php classes.

JavaScript?: chosen, fullcalender and timepicker

I hope that I can use the copylib exception for the js-libs. In any way I don't think you are supposed to unbundle them. Note that this is client-only code, they don't run on the server.

the php files should be unbundled. being old dosen't have any bearing by itself. (If they also had local modifications it might be a different answer).

Currently javascript libraries that only run on the client are not covered by the policy. this could change in the future but no-one has had the will to finish a draft guideline to cover that.

php-when and phpass are unmodified, but smb4php differs quite a lot.

You can see the corresponding commits here: https://github.com/owncloud/3rdparty/commits/247f670a052cad4779ba3dd377756e735af4300d/smb4php/smb.php
