To coordinate our effors:

   1. I set up collab-maint project at alioth. All developers, please do

   git clone <login>@git.debian.org:/git/collab-maint/php-xml-serializer.git

   2. I propose that pkg-php-pear at LIST takes over the maintanance from there.

   3. Federico, could you formally send the RFA request, so that the
   bug can be closed in next upload.


P.s. Thomas and I have already been in contact with similar dpath
migration issues previously.
