IIRC, you talk about #602865, that we have shared some mails with RT and
i've released 1.4.2-3 just after your 1.4.2-2 upload.
Anyway, i lacked time and this was a good thing to take over the close
of the bug.

have a team to take over work). I've started to work on new 1.5.2
version a few weeks ago. You can review my work on:


Don't forget to change the maintainer adress to
pkg-php-pear at lists.alioth.debian.org as Ondrej suggested ;)

My general problem is lack of time for php related packages; i maybe
should review my position in the pkg-php team to avoid other lag in the

Thanks in advance and sorry for the delay.
