Package: boinc-server-maker
Version: 7.0.14+dfsg-1
Severity: important
User: pkg-php-maint at lists.alioth.debian.org
Usertags: php54

Dear maintainer,

package boinc-server-maker currently fails to parse correctly with
PHP 5.4 with following error(s):

PHP Parse error:  syntax error, unexpected 'due_time' (T_STRING), expecting ',' or ';' in /usr/share/boinc-server/html/ops/bolt_refresh.php on line 38
Errors parsing /usr/share/boinc-server/html/ops/bolt_refresh.php
xargs: php5: exited with status 255; aborting

These error were generated by php in the lint mode.  To reproduce
please install php5-cli and run:

dpkg -L boinc-server-maker | grep -E ".php[54]?" | xargs -i php -l {}

PHP 5.4 is planned to be included in wheezy, as such, this bug might
become RC if not fixed before 5.4 is uploaded to sid.
