Hi Alex

You are probably aware of the discussion 

Obviously php5.3 is major upgrade which breaks some backwards compatibility:

and poses some new challenges for compiling the ports eg for the new native 
mysql driver for the mysql(i)/PDO extensions:

We are very active users of the php ports, are keen to upgrade to 5.3 (and 
5.3.1 when released) and wanted to offer our help in testing of the new ports 
if that's helpful. 

Do you plan to create a php53 set of ports or just update the php5 set? 

How far have you got?

Kind Regards

Oliver Schonrock
