There is the other thing about the c5-testing packages needing an 
update, I'll look into that shortly.

There will be plenty to help out with. I've been investigating the idea 
of sub-rep's and how we might handle that in the buildsystem. Give me a 
few days and I should have a proposal that we can all consider. The end 
aim being : <php/web interest group> should be able to request and build 
pkgs into a subrepo that others can opt in or out from. It would need to 
be subrepo's with direct conflict situation between them in this case 
since there are atleast 3 clear php routes so far:

- distro php
- rhwas php
- php.net php

people need to have :
a) easy way to stick to one tree
b) relative easy way to switch from one to the other

and hopefully never need multiple php's on the same machine.
