Thanks for this.

I've dropped the tarball.mk class to manage the upstream source as a dir.

I don't think so, he is just the previous co-maintainer (uploader ?) of
the package. I've removed it from Uploader field for now.

I just discovered your proposal on the extension manager. I don't know
if i have to adapt the package to use it now...

Previous postinstallation of previous maintainers.

I'm not very familiar with cdbs, and i don't know if it is a good thing
 to have a different packaging method than other php related packages.
I would prefer to have an example for another module for php-imagick
packaging, any advices ?

I lacked time to try to fix it some days ago and learn a bit more on
uscan/watch; i modified it to:

opts="uversionmangle=s/RC/rc/,dversionmangle=s/~//" \
	http://pecl.php.net/package/imagick /get/imagick-(.+)\.tgz

and it seems to be ok.
