[csw-users] Question about dependencies

Hi all,

I ran into the following situation: I want to package an application which  
depends on PHP. But for PHP exist different packages for different version  
of the Apache web server and of course it is not known, which version the  
end user has running. Additionaly the end user could have installed PHP  
manually or he has a different web server or ... .

So, how could I handle that? Should my package depend on PHP or not? Maybe  
it's ok to print out a short message, that the user has to make sure, that  
PHP is installed and maybe a zlib extension too and so on?
