I was running the tool from the git repo. That is the reason... A
--force-remote option would be a bonus.

php-crypt-blowfish is now in unstable:

This was the last important missing bit (There is still a package name
mismatch for phpunit).

The config are now as wanted. See attached patch 3.

This add-test.diff for an test boilerplate.

The problem with those test is that the dependencies are required
during build. Maybe we can use an opt-in (DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=check)
instead of en opt-out (DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=nocheck).

General Debian TODOs:
[x] config in /etc
[ ] Create ITPs
[ ] debian/copyright
[ ] Test
[ ] Upload to experimental
[ ] translations in /usr/share/locale
[ ] Run tests during build

Not related to Horde:
[ ] PECL or extension packages incorrectly named (should be named php5-*):
usr/lib/php5/20090626/apc.so                            php/php-apc
usr/lib/php5/20090626/ssh2.so                           devel/libssh2-php
usr/lib/php5/20090626/imlib.so                          php/php-imlib
(no package.xml; has both .php and ext)
php/php-wikidiff2 (no package.xml)
php/php-zeroc-ice (no package.xml)
usr/lib/php5/20090626/gv.so                             php/libgv-php5
usr/lib/php5/20090626/hdate.so                          php/libhdate-php
usr/lib/php5/20090626/expect.so                         web/libexpect-php5

Next work for me is:
foreach($pkg in $pkgs) {
  upload($pkg, "experimental");
