Hello all, I'm new to this list (and new to RPM packaging in Fedora too), so I packaged 2 php-pear libraries which are currently under review by C. Stone. This made me think about the usefulness of packaging Pear libraries as RPM files... A library installation using Pear is usually as simple as running "pear install xxx" so it makes me wonder if we are reinventing the wheel by creating RPMs. After all, pear = yet another yum-like repository with many common commands. The simple answer is that we need RPMs to provide an autonomous Fedora installation DVD. But what about Pear RPMs which are not a dependency of other programs shipped with Fedora? Wouldn't it be a good idea to add Pear as a PackageKit backend? Or is trusting Pear directly too risky?
I'm rather asking me if we should not disable "pear install" feature ;) Ok : not all the pear extensions available in RPM. Using "pear install", you break your system coherency (file not owned by any package) Using RPM you : - keep system coherency - insure yourself the package have been tested on your distribution (at least by the packager) - have update notified by the package manager - enable dependencies checking for web apps Requires; php-pear(Need_Extension) The last is probably the most usefull.
