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?

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! greetings, Mati -- me on twitter: @mathiasertl | soup: http://soup.er.tl I only read plain-text mail! I prefer signed/encrypted mail!
