How do you build from pear.horde.org (I use --allow-remote but there
is no download)?

Thanks. See two more on the queue.

This is now done, I will upload it soon.

Yes, ".mo" usually goes in /usr/share/locale for Debian.

Okay, thanks.

Yes, test is automatically run by dh_auto_test, which calls "test" on
the discovered BuildSystem

We need to implement this test method. What should this method run?

Packages not in Debian:
[/] php-crypt-blowfish (Crypt_Blowfish), required
[ ] php-net-dns2 (Net_DNS2), optionnal

Package present but...:
[ ] php-phpunit: named phpunit
[ ] php-net-smtp: version 1.6 (Net_SMTP)

Other Debian TODOs:
[ ] config in /etc
[ ] translations in /usr/share/locale
[ ] Create ITPs
[ ] debian/copyright
[ ] Test
[ ] Upload to experimental

Perfectionist TODO:
[ ] File conflict between php-horde-scribe and php-horde-thrift
[ ] Run tests during build
