I agree with Sean, PHP is just a part of a whole suite of tools used
for the same goals. If anything, I would agree with David's proposal
transformed into a generic debian-webapp thing.

Now, on the other hand: Debian is about providing a complete framework
on which anybody can do his work. If we were to provide a
debian-webapp list, would it be about the Web applications that exist
in Debian? Or would it rather be about general webapp development? If
it is the first case, I think they can be dealt with here in
debian-devel, in debian-user* or other lists. In the second case, I
don't think it really is Debian's business to provide mailing lists
for it unless there is real interest from a mass of users. Debian
mailing lists are Debian-related, not just development related.
