Documentation : Zip.

Standard PHP 5.5 provides Zip version 1.11.0 which uses libzip version 0.10 (and cannot use a more recent version).

As Fedora 20 now provides libzip 0.11.1 we have chosen to disable this extension as part of main php 5.5 package, and to ship the pecl extension version 1.12.1 instead, which use this recent version. This will allow an easier maintenance, as the extension and the library life cycle will be synced.

Using remi repository, this package will be pulled by php-common to avoid any bad user experience.

This package will be available really soon is available in official Fedora 20 repository (review approved).
