It has been a few weeks since I looked at this.  I know I spent a lot of
time digging up sources to put into the repository.  Yesterday, I
couldn't find it (too many machines…)

So, yesterday I used git-import-dscs to import all the tagged releases
in the php5 repository.  I had to dig up some old orig.tar.gz
(http://museum.php.net/ is your friend) and rebuild the sarge .dsc
files, but I did end up getting all the php5 releases into a git repo.


If there is interest, I can repeat the process to include the php4

Initially, I tried using git-svnimport, and, while that worked to a
certain extent, git-import-dscs was a better tool for getting a
git-buildpackage-ready repo.

git-buildpackage looks a little more finicky about the “clean” target
than svn-buildpackage was (understandable), so I'm going to work at
cleaning it up.

I'll also re-do the work I thought I had already done on 5.3.0 today.
