[Fedora-packaging] PHP packaging policy notes

There are going to be many pear packages which share a directory such
as Auth/ or Image/ or Net/ etc.

The simple rule of thumb in this case is that if there is no clear
heirarchy of directory ownership, then all packages must own that

This should be added to the PHP packaging guidelines since this goes
against the Fedora Extras guidelines which state that the package must
not own files or directories owned by other packages.
