This folder is in the default php include_path.
We have already remove "doc" from this folder a few versions ago.
I think there still some stuff which need to be moved.
I have open a pull request on pear-core to be able to select path of all
configurable folders with installer.
I would like to move (fedora 18)
* test_dir from /ussr/share/pear/test to /usr/share/tests/pear
* xmldir from /usr/share/pear/.pkgxml to /var/lib/pear/pkgxml
In the future (so not fedora 18) :
Will have to investigated if also moving data_dir may break existing
Big work will be to move .channels, .depdb, .depdblock, .filemap, .lock,
.registry as this will probably requires lot of code hacking in pear,
but also a solution for update.
Of course this change will require a mass rebuild of all pear packages
(at least, those installing test units)
php-pear main package provides XML_RPC extension, but this in no more
used by PEAR since version 1.8.0.
I plan to drop this extension from php-pear
So, php-pear-XML-RPC review:
