Where is mailing list, the home page for the project, the CVS or SVN
repository? I was sent to /dev/null.

Do you know the system which gives me:
* easy way to manage the patches
* easy way to generate the packages for different Debian suites -
experimental/sid/sarge/woody - from one source (ifdef..else..endif)
* simple includes with macros so I don't need to write the same code 40 times
for each module (for build/installation/control scripts)
The people just use the php5 package and modifies it on they own. They are
sysadmins, not Debian developers. I've some emails about that.
Yes, I know the better tool. It is RPM but we are Debian world and I don't see
any better than YADA for Debian, yet.
I don't understand why it might be a reason for rejecting the packages. At
least somebody could convert it to the other system AFTER releasing
