The problem with FlySpray on TuxFamily is a random incompatibility in SWIFT 
with a very few PHP 5 version under unknown circumstances. Chance to fix 
without having to completely re-setup PHP on the Server: 0%.

Thus, I'll give you some others to test. I'll place a message then.

That means, it will come for 1.8 :)

Hmm... I'll check this.

The page you are talking about is part of the Tuxfamily project-overview
