Hi Thomas,

That sounds like an interesting prospect.
As I've mentioned we have a package that we can use for wheezy that we
are happy with running at the moment.
The rate of changes/patches to php5.6 might change how happy we are with
our solution down the track though... ;)
I'm not familiar with the process or what channels one should work
through to provide funding and how much money we're talking.
Can you perhaps elaborate on how this would work?
