Package: nagios3-cgi
Version: 3.2.0-5~bpo50+1
Severity: wishlist


In the NEWS.Debian of the nagios3-cgi you wrote:

  I decided to remove the php frontend included with 3.2.0 and replace 
  it with the old html frontend. Its my personal oppinion that php
  should not be used for administrational and security sensitive tasks.

I totally agree with you. So I was unpleasantly surprised where find the
following record into the Depends section of 'testing' version of the

  Package: nagios3-cgi
  Version: 3.2.1-1~bpo50+1
  Replaces: nagios3-common, nagios3-doc
  Depends: nagios3-common (= 3.2.1-1~bpo50+1), coreutils (>= 4.5.3), ucf
  (>= 0.28), apache2-utils, debconf (>= 0.5) | debconf-2.0, libc6 (>=
  2.7-1), libgd2-noxpm (>= 2.0.36~rc1~dfsg) | libgd2-xpm (>=
  2.0.36~rc1~dfsg), libjpeg62, libpng12-0 (>= 1.2.13-4), zlib1g (>=
  1:1.1.4), adduser, libapache2-mod-php5 | php5 | php5-cgi

Does php5 has been added to the Depends list by mistake, or nagios3-cgi
really need php5 now?

Have a nice day,
