We, as in the PHP maintainers, would like to upload PHP 5.3 to unstable.
The upload requires that every package that ships a php extension be binNMUed
(this would normally be detected by packages becoming uninstallable because
the old phpapi- won't be provided, but see below).
I will be filing bug reports against packages shipping a php extension but not
properly depending on phpapi-*. A lintian check will also follow.
Packages building php extensions *must* depend on phpapi-* alone (some
packages depend on php5-* | phpapi-* which is incorrect too -- even the
packages from src:php5 started to do that, but will be fixed on the next upload
The packages have already been uploaded to experimental. Please let us know
when we can upload to unstable.
P.S. the upload targeted to unstable will also be build depending on glib and
libenchant, and introduce two new binary packages (so it will need a trip to
NEW, but that's pretty fast nowadays).
