Great and thanks very much!  

I guess the next question is how to go about getting myself and the other packager (Yann) signed up for access to pkg-php.   I know we both have guest accounts on Alioth...I suppose clicking the  "request to join" link on the pkg-php page would be a good start and then make the  request under our current Alioth accounts?

Also, do you have any guidelines/FAQs/reading for participating in pkg-php group?

A few others are being created in the next couple of weeks.  This group of packages will be co-maintained by myself and the other debian packager mentioned herein.   Our next thing to do is find a most appropriate home for this collaborative effort.  We do know that it will be within Alioth, but uncertain as to exactly where within Alioth.

Alioth mentioned the advantages of this as being less overhead when expanding existing projects.  Also noted is that larger projects tend to live longer/more meaningfully.  Perhaps most pertinent to the request is that PEAR ('P'HP 'E'xtension and 'A'pplication 'R'epository) is all about PHP.
