Thanks, it really was a cruel task.

Okay :-)

You are right, but as I just tried it, I came across a "chicken or the
egg problem" ("l'éternel problème de l'oeuf et de la poule"):
* php-symfony-icu depends on php-symfony-intl
* php-symfony-intl is build out of src:symfony
* src:symfony build-depends on php-symfony-icu
For that I think it is better to omit this build dependency for now. I
pushed a branch 're-enable-symfony-icu-needing-tests', containing a
single reverting commit for that.

Thanks for the hint, I just dropped that field out of the commit.

BTW: I'm constantly rebasing my WIP branches. I name them differently in
future, so it gets clear one better does not push commits in them.

I just merged the WIP branch into master. Please note that BTS #762095
prevents the test from running at all (and I really was not in the mood
to disable a huge bunch of tests in symfony to work around this issue).
I already attached a patch to #762095, so closing this in time should
not be a problem.

Sounds reasonable to me. I have some input regarding the
php-symfony2-yaml to php-symfony-yaml transition. I'll write a separate
mail later tonight or tomorrow in the morning (depending on when I'm
back home).
