Bug Description

This is a petition to package GTK2 for PHP5, a binding for using GTK in PHP5 programming/scripting language. as it is not available in the repos. Currently, there are unofficial repositories offering PHP5-GTK2 package, for example this one:

deb http://deb.orangearchive.net/ hardy main

It would be great if you could package it and include it in the main repositories, a lot of applications made in PHP-GTK2 would be able to run without having to add extra, unofficial (and maybe insecure?) repositories.

URL: http://gtk.php.net/
License: LGPL
Notes: You can download from http://gtk.php.net/download.php and it currently depends on php5 (already available in the repositories)

If you need any other information about this, do not hesitate to ask for it :-)

I vote for this too!

I read at Debain's bug tracker (http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=473396) that an initial release as been made. When it will be available on Ubuntu?

This bug should probably be renamed to [needs-packaging] php-gtk, since that's the name adopted in the Debian ITP (other php5-gtk bugs have been renamed/merged to a single php-gtk one) and could prevent people to see it when they want to report a needs-packaging bug for php-gtk.

As for the "initial release", no release has been done in Debian yet (creating a package != doing all the required work for it to be able to enter a distribution's repositories).

They are both examples of opensource languages/toolkits, It seems silly not to have the package,

The GUI for the phoronix test suite requires it.

Other distros also have it in their repos.
