hey guys,

i think we should hammer out a roadmap for what we want to have
accomplished before etch hits the streets.  here's some stuff off the
top of my head:

- mysqli 
  adding the phpfoo-mysqli packages.  done in svn.

- conf.d
  adam says he has some uncommitted code on this.  any reason i
  shouldn't just add the ./configure option in the meantime?

- README.Debian.security 
  after the recent flurry of mails with joey/moritz at team at s.d.o, it
  seems that it'd be a good idea to have a solid definition of what 
  kinds of configurations will and will-not be supported for security 
  updates.  specifically, the security team will have nothing to do 
  with safe_mode/open_basedir type stuff, nor will they fix what are 
  "application errors" in the php engine.  i have a text blurb that i 
  ran by them that they were happy with, i'll try to dig it up.

- wiki page
  it might also be nice to have something set up at 
  http://wiki.debian.org/php with some really basic info about
  the packaging, our group, etc, and make it clear that post-etch users 
  could post any errata there to supplement bug reports and perhaps 
  serve as a user-maintained HOWTO/FAQ or something.

- coinstallability
  when i was helping push forward the php policy draft a year or so ago,
  the issue of coinstallability came up.  any reason we can't do this?

- other ideas?
