[php-maint] Bug#575357: php5-adodb: Seems to be a duplicate package of libphp-adodb

Package: php5-adodb
Severity: wishlist


When looking at packages libphp-adodb and php5-adodb, one thinks there's a duplicate packaging.

It is quite difficult to understand at first sight, that the latter is an optimization add-on of the former (if I understand correctly).

Maybe the naming of the packages could be a way to reflect this like -plugins do sometimes for some apps.

Something like libphp-adodb-optimizations maybe ?

Hope this helps,

Best regards.
