[php-maint] Packaging external libraries for gnu social

I am trying to package three libraries.

1. htmLawed 

2. Mf2  (http://microformats.org/wiki/microformats-2#PHP)

3. DataObject  (http://pear.php.net/package/DB_DataObject)

These three are external libraries for gnu social. The idea is to
package them and make them dependent to gnu social.

htmLawed and MicroFormat are not in PEAR, Hence I downloaded their
source from 2 different places and took php-streams as a reference to
write files in debian dir. On the other hand DataObject is in RFP(#442363).

I have few questions.

1. For htmLawed and MicroFormat who should be the maintainer? can I put
up "Debian PHP Maintainers <pkg-php-maint at lists.alioth.debian.org>" as

2. I built debian packages for MicroFormat and htmLawed. How and were
should I submit these packages?

3. Can I get sponsors for these packages?

4. MicroFormat can be installed even with composer and their is a file
called composer.json. Should I leave the file in Mf2 directory as it is
or should I remove it?

5. Can I install all these libs to /usr/share/php/ ? or should I install
them in php5? AFAIK all these are small libs which are independent of
php version, But I am not sure.

Thanks & Regards,
