hi gregory,

(i'm going to keep webapps-common in the cc field, since i think there are 
people on that list that don't follow pkg-php who may have things to say)

a quick comment: most of the stuff on this page really isn't "policy" as much 
as it's "recommended packaging techniques".  "policy" would be more 
like "where should the files be placed after installation" etc.

while you're at it, do you have any thoughts/suggestions for how we should 
deal with having both debian-packaged pear modules and locally installed pear 
modules (i.e. pear install foo) on the same system?  in perl they have a 
solution for this by having multiple directories (i.e. site-perl and vendor), 
but we currently don't have anything like that for pear, which has always 
been a problem (and i don't believe this is.
