Description: ------------ 1. Pear is a community 2. Collaboration for outsiders is tricky 3. Firefox 3.0 looks to support microformats, and extensions exist for Firefox 2.0 (http://labs.mozilla.com/2006/12/introducing-operator) I'd like to see a widespread implementation of microformat information, like hcard, in pearweb. This allows us to use the class attribute of standard html elements to encode information in a machine parsable way. The attached patch adds a demonstration microformat to the existing account information page, as well as a public google maps link. Only authorised users get the email information. To see it in action: - use firefox 2 - install https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4106 - apply the patch to pearweb, and visit your working copy - use the 'view with google maps' or 'export contact' features of operator to extract meaningful information to your email client or similar.

The link to the map should go to the pear map as requested in bug #10903

I've run out of time to modify this patch for the next few days, if anyone else wants to tweak that...

Lets do this for 1.19.0 since we are doing the map linker in 1.18.0, just want to reevaluate after that release.

I've partially added this patch, what do we gain from the google part ? Isn't longitude and latitude enough for the geo info ?

Ohh yeah I also didn't go with the "always show email in plain text" for an obvious reason, no need to make it too easy for spammers.

This bug has been fixed in CVS. If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on pear.php.net by the end of next Sunday (CET). If this was a problem with the pear.php.net website, the change should be live shortly. Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release. Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better. added the geo data part to our own existing map url, no need for net_url or such.
