Dear all,

thanks everybody for your patience.  I know how frustrating it is when one
discussion has to be restarted from scratch because of newcommers.

I understand that Christoph is not satisfied about the final implementation
and, in his opinion, a lack of optimisation, but I cannot comment on that part
and I think it should be the topic of a separate bug if that discussion has to

As far as the mime-support package is concerned, I think that we reached the
consensus that we will not add the entries back, and that the consequences will
be documented in the php5-cgi package's NEWS file and in the release notes.

I have asked for comments about our current strategy on debian-devel and debian-release.


Have a nice Sunday,
