Since this also affects me (I filed an RFS for php-phpdocumentor... still 
waiting for Reviewer/Sponsor ;-)): Am I required to maintain packages in that 
git-repository? I joined that Alioth project, but I doubt I get write-access 
right away...

Since Peter seems to be MIA again, here is my opinion: This library supports 
extended HTTP *client* support for PHP. It has far greater possibilities then 
built-in PHP (i.e. "exotic" requests like PUT and DELETE, often used in 
webservices) and is much easier to use than php-curl, since it provides a very 
object-oriented approach. I would be very happy to see this package in Debian!
