php5-imap has been dropped into unusablity - oblivion
Hi Clint

Could you please be so kind an reverse the dropping of the php5-imap
build from the php5 package?

php-imap in Universe has most certainly been abandoned.
It is still based on php5-5.3.5-0ubuntu2 and hasn't been updated in a year.

In Debian where it is beeing build directly from the php5 package is is

So please, drop this forgotten and rotten package from universe and
re-enable it in the standard php5 build.

The current status breaks other software that depends on the
availability of php5-imap

Thank you.

Kind regards
Michael Neuffer

+php5 (5.4.6-1ubuntu1) quantal; urgency=low
+ * Merge from Debian experimental (LP: #1006738 , LP: #1040212)
+ Remaining changes:
+ - d/rules: Simplify apache config settings since we never build
+ interbase or firebird.
+ - debian/rules: export DEB_HOST_MULTIARCH properly.
+ - Add build-dependency on lemon, which we now need.
+ - Dropped firebird2.1-dev, libc-client-dev, libmcrypt-dev as it is
+ in universe.
+ - Dropped libcurl-dev not in the archive.
+ - debian/control: replace build-depends on mysql-server with
+ mysql-server-core-5.5 and mysql-client-5.5 to avoid upstart and
+ mysql-server-5.5 postinst confusion with starting up multiple
+ mysqlds listening on the same port.
+ - Dropped php5-imap, php5-interbase, php5-mcrypt since we have
+ versions already in universe.
+ - Dropped libonig-dev and libqgdbm since its in universe. (libonig
+ MIR has been declined due to an inactive upstream. So this is
+ probably a permanent change).
+ - modulelist: Drop imap, interbase, sybase, and mcrypt.
+ - debian/rules:
+ - Dropped building of mcrypt, imap, and interbase.
+ - Install apport hook for php5.
+ - stop mysql instance on clean just in case we failed in tests
+ - debian/control, debian/rules: Re-enable libedit-dev.
+ * Dropped Changes:
+ - debian/rules: change memory limits on example .ini files.
