* Package name    : pear-channels
  Version         : 0.0.1
  Upstream Author : Debian PHP PEAR Maintainers <pkg-php-pear at lists.alioth.debian.org>

  Description     : PEAR channels for various projects

 This package provides the PEAR channel registry entries for various
  * Apache log4php, oodt and zetacomponents
  * AWS
  * Doctrine
  * Guzzle
  * Horde
  * Michel Fortin
  * Phing
  * PHPUnit
  * Symfony (versions 1 and 2)
 PEAR is a framework and distribution system for reusable PHP
 components. A PEAR channel is a website that provides package for
 download and a few extra meta-information for files.

The project list will of course be extended following the needs: I just
compiled the 4 existing pear-*-channel packages with the 3 other
pear-*-channel packages currently sitting in NEW, and added a few more
after looking at the current php* prospective packages in WNPP.

Do not hesitate to point me to more channels, or even better, add them
directly in the Git repository as soon as the structure exists.

The existing and awaiting pear-*-channel packages do the pear dance
without relying on network access, in order to make them compatible
with the Debian standards for building packages. Hopefully, this
pear-channels package will also address ftpmaster’s concerns and avoid
further “[insert something here]” kind of “discussion”.
