pkg-xen ? ... you meant pkg-php, I guess ;)

I'm not sure I could find that info : is there some collaborative maintenance
git repo for PEAR modules ?

I found http://wiki.debian.org/PHP/GitUsage but that doesn't seem to document
the case of PEAR packages.

Also, note that the phpunit-related packages aren't maintained upstream in the
standard PEAR repos, but instead in phpunit.de ... would it make a difference,
relating to their maintenance ?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,
