php5 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: php5

Kolab currently ships an embedded copy of php5. They have seen the error of their ways and would prefer to use the system php5. Unfortunately, they need a couple of patches that aren't upstream yet.

Has this patchset been submitted for main line PHP? I tried searching the PHP-DEV mailing list, and whilst there were references, they seemed to be inconclusive.

I'm not sure. Unfortunately I chose to take up this part of the work right as
the Kolab PHP person was on vacation. SpamapS has said he'd look into it.

One of them has been submitted, and has sat unmerged for a long time:

I imagine it just needs a nudge (and possibly a pointer to the newer 5.3.2 patch)

The other I can't find where it has been submitted.

Both look good and probably just need to be merged, as they simply exploit new functionality in IMAP.

I will poke php-internals and see if they can get the patches merged soon. At that point I'd be ok with us adding them to our package as a temporary bridge to the new version. Otherwise I'd rather not carry these patches just for Kolab's benefit, as these functions are as of yet undocumented and it may not be clear to a PHP developer why they're there in Ubuntu's PHP, and not stock PHP.

Upstream has at least committed to trying to get the patches into the next release of PHP. Once they're committed to PHP SVN, I'd suggest applying the patches and forwarding to Debian.

Debian is probably not immediately interested in the patches since they are frozen (now) for the Squeeze release.
