Bug#540061: RFH: phpwiki -- informal collaborative website manager

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I request assistance with maintaining the phpwiki package. In particular, I
need assistance dealing with a number of bugs related to code from other
packages that is embedded within the PHPwiki codebase. There is also at least
one further instance of this reported by lintian which is not yet in the BTS.

PHPwiki wasn't really designed to have these dependencies fulfilled outside of
the PHPwiki source and the upstream has not made a release for quite some time
(although there are sporadic commits to the upstream svn repository).

Some of the code included in PHPwiki is older than the currently packaged
versions and a quick diff shows large changes between the packaged versions and
PHPwiki's embedded copy.

Anyone interested in working on this will likely need to be willing to modify
PHPwiki to support loading the dependencies from outside of the PHPwiki source
tree, fix any breakage/changes required by the newer versions and then submit
the patches upstream. I don't have the time to undertake this kind of work at
the moment.

Let me know if you are interested.
