Proposal for "PEAR_Exception"

» Metadata » Status
» Description

Splitting off PEAR_Exception from PEAR itself - it's already done on git.

What does this mean and why am I writing it up as an RFC?

Broadly, this means packages like HTTP_Request2 can be installed by say, pyrus, and not have to download the entire PEAR1 installer.

But doing this means it will override the existing PEAR_Exception definition, so it might be a bit interesting in the next release of PEAR itself (pear upgrade pear -> remove PEAR/Exception.php).

I suspect that it'll hurt and confuse a number of users, so my plan is
- Release PEAR_Exception only
- Fix a ton of packages that require it for PEAR_Exception and get releases out.
- Suggest someone else do a release of the pear installer with an appropriate explanation of how to fix any upgrade problems (pear upgrade pear && pear install PEAR_Exception)
- Hide from bug reports

Here's the list of things which explicitly depend on PEAR at the moment. Any of these which are PHP5+ are probably doing it for PEAR_Exception. A bunch are probably doing it for PEAR_Error, and those can be forked/superceeded at some later time.
