In the early times of PEAR, all new packages were proposed by an informal email to the PEAR developers mailing list. Over the time, the number of new proposals increased quite dramatically, making it hard to keep track of all the proposals.
A web-based proposal handling system was established to solve these problems. The system is called PEPr. It is pronounced like the spice and stands for "PEAR Proposal system".
This chapter describes the requirements and the workflow for a PEPr-based proposal. After that we will provide you with information, on how to actually start a proposal. Finally, you will learn what to do once the proposal is finished.
After reading this chapter, you will be able to start a proposal for your code right away.
