[pkg-php-pear] Bug#780418: Recommends zendframework, but zendframework is going away

Package: postfixadmin
Version: 2.3.7-1
Severity: important
Control: affects -1 zendframework


postfixadmin recommends zendframework (version 1), but this package is
unlikely to make it for Stretch: we intend to ship version 3 of
zendframework, that will be maintained in separate packages (associated
with separate upstream components). We’d thus like to get rid of the
zendframework package as soon as possible after Jessie gets released.

As per #684080, I assume that zend-xmlrpc is the component you’re
looking for, can you please check that my assumption is right and that
the code is compatible with zendframework version 2 already?

I just had a quick look into packaging php-zend-xmlrpc, but it will
depend on the not yet packaged php-zend-http, php-zend-math and
php-zend-server, that in turn will depend on the not yet packaged
php-zend-loader, php-zend-uri, and php-zend-validator, that in turn will
depend on the not yet packaged php-zend-escaper…

Working on eight new packages for a recommendation on a package I don’t
use myself may not be on top of my own TODO list, so I would appreciate
some feedback on the ability of postfixadmin to use at least version 2
of zend-xmlrpc before considering going into that path (and would
welcome any help for maintaining this stack).

Please note that php-zend-* packages version 2 are not really
straightforward, but upstream intend to change its development for ZF3
by “separating components into individual, versioned projects”, so the
separated Debian packages started for ZF2 are really the way to go, and
should be easier to handle as soon as version 3 will be available.
