Hey Tim,

thank you for working on these packages. They are very important for our 
projects. I'm part of the developer team of TYPO3 content management 
system. We have a lot of clients that run CentOS 5 and cannot upgrade to 
the latest version of TYPO3 (as it requires PHP 5.2).

I will be testing these packages in the next days and report back if we 
have any problems with them.

All the best,
Benni Mack
