Re: Status of PHP5?

May I then ask why the maintainers of PHP4 hasn't joined the
discussion?  I think it would be important that they explain their
reasons for not having packaged PHP5 yet.

Adam Conrad wrote[1] in August 2004 that the PHP5 packages would be
uploaded soon, but that they had taken a backseat to PHP4 packages and
the Sarge release.

These are honest questions:

* Do the PHP4 maintainers find PHP5 too buggy for inclusion in Debian?

* Do they lack the time to maintain PHP5?

I can understand that they want things "done right", but please, six
months is a long time.  An update on the situation would be very much
