Next time, please leave pkg-php-pear at lists.alioth.debian.org as Cc: to
your mail, this got to be public, to leave a chance to others to see it too.

You don't need the versionned dependency of pkg-php-tools, because there
is only one version available in Debian, which is the one you are
depending on. So just "Build-Depends: debhelper (>= 8), pkg-php-tools"
is ok.

On the resulting package, you do not appear as uploader. That might be
an issue with php-pkg-tools (which is very new).

I don't think you need the debian/dirs file.

Please remove the commented values in debian/control.

Otherwise, the package is now lintian clean (at least in Squeeze, I
didn't test yet on SID, which has to be done before the upload), which
is good.

Mathieu and Gunnar, can you have a quick look at the package, and let me
and Jan-Pascal know if it is how you think it should? I never used
pkp-php-tools, so it'd be great if you checked too. Is it used well
here? Is --buildsystem=phppear --with phppear what makes the
debian/rules file use pkg-php-tools? If so, that's great, and I think
I'll move all my PHP pear packages to that new system.

By the way, what's the status for Horde packaging?

Please comment,

Thomas Goirand
