looking at the VCS may not tell the whole story - there could be
changes on the server, which are not committed to VCS

i think we are going to need the actual running server code -
this is what i would do:

* commit everything which is not committed
  $ git add -A ; git commit -m wip ;
* commit everything which is not tracked
  $ git add -Af ; git commit -m untracked ;
* email it (encrypted) to damien

again, we can not presume that the published schema accurately
reflects the live DB - we should get a schema dump of the live
DB, then compare it to the published source schema

unfortunately, that is the most common reason why any existing
software is re-written - its not a great reason though - IMHO,
there should be a more compelling reason than: "i dont wanna
learn anything new", such as: "its broken", "all function and
variable names are a single-letter", "it has no documentation",
"its written in french"

im not convinced that it is; but i wont be the one maintaining
it, so my opinion is irrelevant

if i were to do it, i would choose rails, because i like ruby;
but the languages and tools used, are mostly a matter of
preference/familiarity - someone with a strong PHP background,
could probably be able to knock down any other argument
