ok, thanks.

so i have actually started from a dependency mainly to assess how much
work it would take me to go through dependencies before composer
itself: php-symfony-process is uploaded to git.debian.org


and if that's convenient for tests, to mentors.d.o as well:

i have tried re-compiling on a pristine lxc container with sid using the
.dsc on mentors.d.o and that worked ok, but haven't done further tests
on anything else than amd64 dev environments.

i have left the ${phpcomposer:description} substvar in debian/control as
my understanding is that this should be handled correctly as soon as
dpkg-dev is fixed, as mentioned in

if this package looks ok, once i incorporate any feedback i can move on
to packaging the other dependencies and composer itself. i actually
notice that symfony 2 packages are being worked on
(http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=710788), which would
make three of the five dependencies for composer available directly via
the symfony2 PEAR channel, but in the meanwhile, at least to be able to
test my composer package, packaging the two other symfony components
should be straightforward as they share the same layout as the one i've
been working on to start with.
