RE: [tools-pmc] PHP Project dropping integration with WTP?

Well, I think this question is more appropriately posed of the PHP project's
community. Does anyone on php-dev care to comment if they haven't yet (sorry
I joined the php-dev list and the archives haven't been updated yet today)

Subject: [tools-pmc] PHP Project dropping integration with WTP?

John, Doug, Jeff,
While reading the WTP PMC email list, I saw a conversation about the PHP 
project and it's use/non-use of WTP server infrastructure: "The PHP 
tools project has dropped or is planning to dropped support for the 
Apache Server built on top of the WTP server infrastructure. The PHP 
team is building there own Apache server support which isn't based on 
the WTP server infrastructure. ... Eventually the PHP team decided to 
move off the WTP server infrastructure."

Is this true? I was unable to find any supporting documentation (for 
yeah or nay) on the PHP project website or php-dev mailing list. In 
fact, as a serious aside, I couldn't find the PHP project plan anywhere 
on the PHP project's website. The project plan is an *essential* part of 
an Eclipse project's interaction with the community at large - why isn't 
there a project plan link on the website? Where is the plan?

Given that Board has explicit passed a resolution calling for more 
integration between the projects, having a project move towards less 
integration, and doing so without public discussion, just doesn't seem 
like a good thing. In fact, it seems like a bad thing.

Could you guys clarify the situation?
