Oh ok, I didn't know about it. I'll try it, having a look at it, it
seems smarter than what I did, as it uses /usr/bin/pear download, when I
was stupidly parsing the pear.php.net website.

I sure did. The issue being that I'm not a DD, and that I maintain
nearly 28 packages, which is overloading my sponsor. I sent him already
about a dozen of package to check and upload already, and I don't feel
comfortable asking for so many at the same time. I have also
automysqlbackup, yum and others that are ready for an upload as well.

Would it be possible to have sponsoring help from you guys, if I update
my php-* packages? That would greatly help, and I believe that it would
be better to use sponsors from the pkg-php team rather than just Roberto
all the time. Please let me know, and if I have a positive feedback from
you guys, you'll have the packages to check within days.
