At least to a large extent. Thanks for providing the build helper.
I generated a first set of Horde4 packages here:
These are not yet complete and installable. This is currently just a
smoke test for the build machinery but it should evolve into something
installable rather soon.
Feedback from this first build run:
- I had a problem with the "download_dir" not being writeable and
added '"-d", "download_dir=/tmp",' in the phppear.pm file. I still
need to check why this happened.
- Horde_Role: This package failed to build as '$pf =
$pkg->fromAnyFile($packagefilename, PEAR_VALIDATE_NORMAL);' failed in
phppkginfo. I believe '$pf = $pkg->fromAnyFile($packagefilename,
PEAR_VALIDATE_DOWNLOADING);' is sufficient and fixed the problem here.
- Files in "horde_dir": The purpose of Horde_Role is to add a new
PEAR configuration variable "horde_dir". This one specifies the target
location for files that need to be served by the web server. For now I
hacked this by adding '"-d", "horde_dir=/usr/share/horde4",' in the
phppear.pm file. Definitely not the way to solve the underlying
problem and I assume the way how this might work on Debian still needs
What is required to get this process moving along? So far both
pkg-php-pear and pkg-horde-hackers have been very, very quiet.
