Sounds sensible. Anyways, I would appreciate it if someone who knows would write a howto, so that RMs can verify that things are done properly. I guess in the past Derick took care of a lot of these moves via OS level file system magic. I do not know the details on how this worked. If it was a copy
or a move and if there was a cvs rm afterwards or not.

Hannes is right, it can't be a OS Level directory move but at least a
copy. Doing a move will change the previous branches and that's not
desired. The ideal solution would be:

- Filesystem: cp -r php-src/ext/foo pecl/
- cvs rm php-src/ext/foo

If the extension is still usable or not dead (unlike sybase but like
ming for example), in cooperation with the extension maintainers if
- create the pecl.php.net/foo package and its content, license, maintainer
- create the package.xml, commit
- release the package (I can explain the PECL release process if necessary)

sounds good to me.

next question .. who can do the FS level cp? i think it would be good to have a list of people RM's can contact for this step. also this way we know the bus-faktor (after all people can disappear temporarily or permanently).
