As David notes, the problem is with the comment fields - causes
problems on certain versions of mysql evidently.    Changing all the
comment fields from text to clob gets the pearweb post install script
to successfully complete for me.

Attached patch for the pearweb_mdb2schema.xml

Other than that... appears to work fine!

File_Archive

Hi all,

Just wondering what happened to the File_Archive guys... Did they fall 
off the edge of the earth? ;)

I submitted a possible patch to a bug that I ran into a few times and 
got no response from them...  Not an urgent thing now, but something 
just reminded me about it today...

Sorry for not giving feedback,  I'm one of the developers of
File_Archive.

I was ending my career and was very busy in the last months. Now that I
have some free time I'll be working with this package, just be patient
for 2-3 days ;-) so I start committing the patches and preparing a
bug-fix release.

Cheers,

In case you cannot contact vincent, shout and we'll give you lead over 
the package or ask somebody to step up.

Aha! So Tony is in Iowa!?!?  I'm in Lincoln, NE.

From what I've picked up it sounds like you're testing out some
application deployment methods using PEAR?   Once I started using PEAR
for application deployment I don't see myself ever going back. It's a
very nice system... I've built a few applications for UNL like
http://events.unl.edu/ , as well as my personal site (
http://saltybeagle.com/ ) using pear packages --- installing the web
files, configuring databases etc.

Major enhancements to pearweb

Hi everyone,

Thanks to a little time on an airplane, and a bit of good work by Arnaud
Limbourg, we have two new features at pearweb:

1) account registration for voting in PEAR's general elections is now
automated (arnaud)
2) package homepages now display very useful information about bug
tracker activity than can be used to judge whether a package is being
actively maintained independent of the label. (me)

Check out your packages to see how yours stack up against the rest of PEAR!

Note that the age of bugs is the important thing here.  For instance,
the Pager package is ranked 169 out of 170 packages with open bugs
(bad), even though it has only 1 open bug, because the bug is more than
2 years old.  This bug could easily be resolved (excellent solution is
suggested by the original opener, Alan Knowles), and is an example of a
bug that should be cleaned up as it helps to give PEAR a bad name for no
good reason at all.  By fixing and closing this bug, Pager would go from
#169 to #1 instantly.  Everyone wins.

Automated account registration is in place to allow the implementation
of PHP-wide elections.  Many elections will only be open to developers
with pear.dev karma, like PEAR president, for instance.  Some important
elections, such as what direction PEAR should take, are going to be open
to all people with an interest in PEAR.

Shortly, I will post our first official election to sift through mission
ideas for PEAR, and help to determine where we should go next.  At that

Re: Major enhancements to pearweb

I therefore also would like to announce a new feature we are currently
implementing into pearweb a way of mapping developers around the world.

as we I mean:
- Christian Weiske (static maps generation),
- Brett Bieber (feedbacks & testing)
- I (David Coallier) (javascript, gmaps implementation, webservice,
logisitics )

In this you can see a description of what has been started and here's
another update and a clearer description of the feature

(**PLEASE NOTE THAT EVEN IF I MAY USE PRESENT TENSE, THIS IS CURRENTLY ONLY
IMPLEMENTED ON LOCAL PEARWEB INSTALLATION NOT LIVE ON
HTTP://PEAR.PHP.NETTHANKS**):

The feature of having a way to map pear developers around the world will
bring two major things to developers (I believe). First, developers will be
able to meet with other php devs which is of course cool, but also, a
contractor that uses a package and see that you are actually very near him
will be much more interested in requesting services from the developer in
question.

So the description of the idea:
There will be three type of maps on the site, first of all there is a new
page available (which will be located to pear.php.net/map/ that has a public
map, with all markers and locations of developers (using gmap2). Also in the
profile editing part of your account,  you now have a button (link) "Open
Map" which will pop up a map and then you have to double click on  your
location in order to automatically fill the two new added fields "latitude"

I do not want to make this all too complex, but it might make sense to 
also cram in there some information about the number of downloads for 
the release with the highest stability level and some relation to LOC as 
well. But generally I think its an awesome addition.

The important point of this is that it should not discourage developers 
because they feel like their package is ethernally branded as low 
quality. So there has to be a clear chance to improve the ranking. This 
is especially important if maintaince of a package changes. As a result 
I think the history should only cover the last 12 months.

regards,
Lukas
