Subject: php5-xdebug: remove dependency on libapache2-mod-php5
Date: Thu, 04 Oct 2012 05:20:10 +0000
Package: php5-xdebug
Version: 2.1.0-1
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks unrelated software


The php5-xdebug package is configured with a dependency on libapache2-mod-php5, though there is no need to be running under apache, in order to use php5-xdebug.

I run a system with nginx and fastcgi.  Installing php5-xdebug installed apache, which loaded before nginx on reboot and caused a site outage.

It seems unlikely that php5-xdebug users who wish to use xdebug to debug web applications will need help to install their web server, and php5-xdebug can be used with php5-cli and no web server at all.  I suggest that this dependency should be removed, and not replaced with a different web related dependency.  I don't see a need for this to be a recommendation or suggestion, but that would at least not break things.

This isn't exact, as the dependency is with a virtual package
(phpapi-20090626 for stable and phpapi-20100525 for squeeze).

The dependency can be satisfied with Apache PHP module, PHP CLI and PHP
FCGI, choose what you want.

If there aren't any further comments, I'll close this report in a few days.
