I added the php-symfony-var-dumper.

In order to have tests for 2.6.x running again, we need two new
build-dependencies. I reused the old Symfony initial packaging page on
wiki.d.o [1] to lists those. Do you have time to package them? If it is
not time-critical to you (and you are willing to give me some support),
I can can try to package at least one of them.

Regarding the failing DEP-8 as-installed tests, I'm currently unable to
reproduce the errors found in the logs on ci.d.n on my local setup. I
think I need to check my "B10autopkgtests" hook in pbuilder, in order to
being able to reproduce the fails occurring on ci.d.n.

I took care about those new images/icons. None of them were added by
SensioLabs and none of them were added under a special license, which in
turn means all were added under the terms of EXPAT. Thus no updates to
d/copyright were needed, but I updated d/licensing/image-checksums.dcf
in order to have the image-license-checker recognize the new images.

In commit 7fcd3caeff248fa100cc2abe65632efcd6829808 I added four
(versioned) provides, since upstream kind of split symfony/security
An alternative to this would be to package those into individual binary
packages and make the existing php-symfony-security an empty binary
package depending on all of them. But this would make packaging (yet)
more complex and I do not see a benefit worth doing so in it.

Regarding the 2.3 series of Symfony, there were three new upstream
releases (2.3.24 is current). As far as I saw, there were at least no
heavy security related issues fixed in any of the new releases (however
there were quite some fixes in the security component). Nevertheless I
would like to update the 2.3 series, but I'm unsure how this complies
with the freeze.
Is there a chance of getting a new version (without pointing out major
security issues) into the now frozen testing?


PS.: I just saw you updated the packaging to 2.6.3. I refreshed the
patches for it and updated the (snapshot) changelog entry accordingly.
