Recently approved changes in PHP Guidelines


File placement.

For consistency with PEAR packages, PECL documentation provided by
upstream are installed in %{pecl_docdir}, should stay there, and must be
marked as %doc.

C extensions and PECL packages configuration file.

Each extension should drop a configuration file in %{php_inidir} and/or
%{php_ztsinidir} to enable the extension. This file must contains the
name of the loaded extension. Starting with Fedora 21, the file must use
a numeric prefix to ensure correct load order.

Composer/packagist registered packages

PEAR is slowy dying and composer is the new de-facto standard installer
and dependency resolver.

Dependencies between composer/packagist registered packages are now
managed using the virtual provide php-composer(vendor/library).
