[pkg-php-pear] sabre/dav version and upcoming update

Hi Mathieu et al.,

Currently (as in Jessie), Horde *Dav and ownCloud both use version 1.8
of sabre/dav (as available in the php-sabre-dav package).

Soon, ownCloud 8 will need the version 2.1 (as already available in
experimental), but for Horde 6, that’s not so sure [1].

Do you have any information, pointer to a roadmap or a VCS to figure out
what is coming next in Horde, and when (and especially in Debian)?

Assuming we won’t manage to be in sync this time (or at least to avoid
blocking each other for the time being), I could introduce a
php-sabre-dav-2.1 package, and have it installed out of the usual path
(and deal with it in the owncloud package), while keeping php-sabre-dav
at version 1.8 as long as needed by Horde.

I could also introduce a php-sabre-dav-1.8 package, have it installed
out of the usual path, and let you deal with that path in the
php-horde-dav package.

What would be your preference here? Depending on the information we
could have about “what is coming next in Horde”, one of the two proposed
options might be better than the other, maybe other options are worth
investigating too.

[ My preference, as a php-sabre-dav maintainer, would be to keep the
  latest version in the usual path, and provide older version outside of
  it, but I’m probably biased as an owncloud maintainer too. ]

Even if the NEW queue is currently dropping, the average amount of time
for processing is still very high, so choosing soon a path could be
worth it (I’m still waiting for almost twenty packages to push
owncloud 8 into experimental, but would prefer not to see that plan
delayed too much by the php-sabre-dav thing ;).
