Hi there!

I would advise you to send your ITP also to the PHP maintainer list:

pkg-php-maint at lists.alioth.debian.org

Also, since we try to maintain everything as a team when it comes to
PHP packages, I would advise that this package is also sent to the
pkg-php git repository. That means that you should join the Alioth
project for it, and do your packaging using Git.

If you do the above effort, and nobody steps in (maybe Ondrej or Sean
has enough time to check on it? You guys might have a better level
than me for such PECL modules...), I'll review it and sponsor it (if of
course, it's good enough).

But before I do that, could you please explain a bit more what it
does, and why php5-pecl-http is useful?

Thanks for your packaging effort,

Thomas Goirand (zigo)
