Well, the game has started in #726918 and I just pushed a proposed
updating workflow into Git (I finally opted to make it a non-native

How do you plan to address the loop concerns raised last month?

If you plan on increasing the number of binary packages for any new
channel, it definitely won’t address the ftpmaster’s concerns (it will
furthermore add the hassle to pass through the NEW queue every time one
new binary package is added).
There is nothing carved in stone, but the proposed layout in
pear-channels is to conveniently put every channel.xml file in the
channels/ directory, following the channels/$url_to/channel.xml path.
All channel registry entries shall then be installed by the single
pear-channels binary package that will also conveniently install a
shared pkg-php-tools-overrides file.
I’d now like to work on the building part of the package. I’m still note
convinced that build-depending on pkg-php-tools will be the smartest
move (because of the potential loop) — unless you actually wish to
directly build the pear-channels binary package from the pkg-php-tools
source package — but I’d be happily convinced otherwise.
