Yes please, just subscribe via the Alioth web interface, and once you’re
there, please move your Git packaging repository into it.

That shouldn’t be necessary, but do not hesitate to do so (X-D-ccing this
list) in case your request gets unnoticed (that shouldn’t happen, but you
might get unlucky at a moment where nobody has any spare time to review
it, so you may wish to open an RFS bug as a “ping”).

I just had a (very) quick look at the package, not even tried to build it,
but here are some comments after it (I may have more precise comments
after a closer look: I didn’t even looked at the upstream part yet):
- changelog: the ITP bug number looks wrong;
- control:
  - Vcs-* needs fixing (cf. supra);
  - Depends:
    - php-common (>= 5.3.0) should be brought by
${phpcomposer:Debian-require} (in its correct form)
    - there is no php-curl package (why is it needed?)
    - “cme check dpkg” will probably find more errors
- copyright: s/MIT/Expat/
- gbp.conf: might not be accurate nor needed
- README.source: useless template
- watch: may handle “analog_0_9_0_beta”-like versions
- examples could be shipped.

Given the Depends errors, I can only assume the package is uninstallable,
and thus has not been tested. I strongly advise to properly test your
package before seeking for sponsor.
