Very good! I saw that and forgot to mention it. Sometimes, upstream
description might not be good for Debian.

I'm not admin on that project, I believe you should write a mail to
pkg-php-maint at lists.alioth.debian.org (I believe admins of a given
project wont even receive a mail if you request to enter a project (this
might have changed, I'm not sure)). I'm not sure if we should move our
packages to /git/pkg-php-pear by the way.
