no prob, that's what we're here for.  The more people using phpGW teh better :)

it's php, there is no compiling needed.  The deb package just dumps the tarball 
your web root and very little more.

It doesn't matter what user owns the files so long as the files are world 
or readable by the www-data user via groups or whatever works for you.

Oh that's right!  The deb packages sets up a special ini thingie so phpgw uses a
different session dir than the plain old php.ini.  Makes things unessicarily
complex.  Also copies your to /etc and makes a link, which might
sound like a good idea but again is complicated if you wanted to host more than 
phpgw site on the server.

yeah, the deb install seems to not use a standard setup.  If they are going to 
things differently than our standard layout then they should handle it properly.
Probably should file a bug report on the deb package with debian.
