If you know this so well, why did you ignore it for all the extensions 
that you moved to PECL? From the NEWS file:

- Moved extensions to PECL (Pierre):
  . ext/dbase
  . ext/fbsql
  . ext/ming
  . ext/sybase (not maintained anymore, sybase_ct has to be used instead)

Those four all have no history anymore in pecl/<extname>

  . ext/ncurses

Wasn't even moved now, but three years ago by hartmut.

  . ext/fdf

Doesn't even exist in pecl/.

I was going to make a release today that still works for ming 0.3 (for 
5.2 and 5.3) but all the history was gone and I'm not going to spend 
hours to clean up after you. Please revert this mess for those four 
extensions that have no history in PECL, so that we can do it correctly 
- that is, resurrect all the files in HEAD and PHP_5_3 so that we can 
properly copy them to PECL.
