cool!  i haven't actually tried the package out only because i'm not horribly
familiar (i.e. at all) with the zend framework, but it passes lintian without 
any warnings, and looks good from a quick overview.

i also checked the licensing, as that's been an issue in the past with other
debianized packages of php/pear stuff.  I don't see any significant 
problems with that here though, since pretty much everything seems
 to be under a BSD style license instead of the php v3 license.

*however*, there are a few exceptions to the above, which need to get 
fixed before i could sign off on it.  i would count an email from someone 
at zend saying, "oh, that was an oversight/typo/omission" or "you can use
this new bsd license for that too" as "fixed", assuming that some day it 
will actually be fixed.

- many of the files refer to the license at
  which 404's for me.  i'm guessing that these haven't been updated
  to the "new-bsd" license?  grep puts the number of files at around 120, so
  i won't bother trying to list them here.
- one file:
  seems to still use the PHP license.  i don't think this is ought to be a
  problem, but the ftp-master (the gatekeepers for new software in
  debian) take a particularly hard line on this license and it may require
  arguing/justifying later on if they decide to get picky.
- also, many of the files refer to the file LICENSE as having the copyright
  info, when it is in fact LICENSE.txt.  hardly worth mentioning, but since
  i was already looking i might as well mention it :)

so, if someone from zend could follow up on these issues, and if you could put
their statements following up on the issue in ./debian/copyright, i'd be happy
to sign off on it.

oh, btw, i've added you to the pkg-php alioth group now, so you should
have svn access.  i'll send another email about that shortly.
