I vote for uploading the big package :). But having those six other
packages prepared (or even uploaded) is a good idea.

Thanks, I took over your updates. It had a double 'automatically' in it.
I updated php-symfonyclassloader.git to have it only once in the
description there, too - hope you don't mind.

I don't like the descriptions found in the composer.json files much.
They either add not much additional information over the package name or
provide too long text (like symfony/intl does). I would prefer to stay
with the existing hand-crafted ones currently found in d/control.

I agree, but not all components provide such a page. Additionally I
worry about upstream changing or moving the [2]-style deep-links (they
already were broken in past). Anyhow I changed the links where possible,
but used the 2.3 version in the hope the 2.3 series documentation will
not be restructured by upstream and the links keep valid over the next

Having my own troubles tracking that thread, I really like this
