Thanks. The job was easier because upstream (Horde devs) choose to use
a cross-distribution package scheme (i.e PEAR). Gunnar Wrobel has
written "components": a horde app converting PEAR packages to RPM or
debs (with my help). This with my creation of pkg-php-tools (now also
used on most of PEAR packages in Debian) has finished the move to

Having another DD (or DM) would be great. Doc is here ("Our Git repositories"):
