I've accepted your request to join the Debian GIS team, please read the backports section of the policy of you've not done so already:


Also read the Backports contributor documentation:


Specifically the Basic Rules.

Regarding the PHP MapScript changes, you'll need to undo the php5 -> php changes. The backport needs to keep using the php5-mapscript name.

The backported package must be built in a clean jessie chroot, and the the security sources need to be enabled for php5 updates. You'll need to modify the /etc/apt/sources.list in the chroot for that.

Please use this list to ask for review of the package and sponsoring of the upload.

Kind Regards,
