These are exciting times for PEAR. Recently, we have had a move to new hardware for the website, several exciting PHP5-based packages have been accepted, the next incarnation of the PEAR Installer is in active development, and development roadmaps are available for all packages on the website.
As PEAR moves forward, it is time to re-evaluate the way that decisions are made, who makes them, and how they are documented. Some example decisions:
To date, there have been a number of major problems with all of these questions and more. Most importantly, PEAR has not moved fast enough to keep up with innovation, while at the same time providing backwards compatibility.

The three choices are simple:
As you choose between the three, please read the documentation of each choice completely (click "More Info" for each choice), and vote carefully.
If you decide that you disapprove of all 3 choices, please click the "Abstain" button to register your disapproval. Only a clear winner with a majority of the votes (greater than 50%) is an official decision.
Thank you for your consideration.
