I should find some time next week to look into it, thanks for your work.

Great, I was wondering if that could be possible, thanks.

Not sure it’s worth banging our heads on the current code that is being
rewritten, hopefully Mathieu will manage to include something about it
in his current work in progress, and if not, I’d be willing to (help
someone) look into it on the new codebase when it will be available.

Looks like the only worthy series to track for Jessie’s lifetime.

Prach should know better if a version newer than 2.3 is actually needed.

I wonder if php-symfony-yaml is still used, but maybe it’s time to take
over this (binary) package name? If some packages actually rely on a
version higher than 2.3 for php-symfony-yaml, they may still use
php-symfony2-yaml, and if there are none (or few), we may start a
transition from php-symfony2-yaml to php-symfony-yaml as soon as the
php-symfony-yaml binary package will be built from the new symfony
source package (not sure it is worth calling it php-symfony BTW).
