We will hold the first PEAR Meeting (following the
Int. PHP Conference
Amsterdam on May 9th at 17:30.
has been graciously sponsored by Jeroen Houben. We will provide a live
stream from the meeting so that people that did not make it to the meeting in
person can participate via web. Apart from that there will be the
possibility to join the discussion via IRC.
The agenda is as follows:
- Quality vs. Quantity
- Should documentation be a requirement for new packages?
- The PFC
- PEAR on Windows
- Preventing conflicts among developers
- The website (rating system, comment system, package proposals)
- PEAR Installer
- PHP 5
- PEAR CS (method naming conventions?)
- PEAR promotion
The following people will participate in person:
Sebastian Bergmann, Hartmut Holzgraefe, Jeroen Houben,
Sterling Hughes, Wolfram Kriesing, Jan Lehnardt,
Derick Rethans, George Schlossnagle, Lukas Smith, Markus Wolff.
Everyone who will participate should be prepared accordingly. The
meeting will probably last about 4 hours with a short break. Jeroen can
probably provide drinks but if we want food we will have to
come up with something ourselfs (like ordering pizza). All the people
listed above will be contacted by me.
Please note that while we want this meeting to be as open as possible,
we may have to limit participation if the interest becomes too great. The
meeting room can hold up to 15 people. We may also have to moderate the IRC
channel if things become too confusing to follow.
- #pear for general discussion between users listening/watching *about* the meeting
- #pear.meeting the channel for the meeting +m (moderated)
When necessary newer members of the PEAR community may therefore
be unable to directly communicate with the meeting. I would therefore
suggest to newer members to write down their ideas as a well thought
out RfC and post it to the mailinglist
or send it to
That way we can more easily incorporate their ideas into the meeting.
Please mail all comments to either
or Lukas Smith
