Bug #14557 bz2 is optional, not required
Submitted: 2008-08-25 07:48 UTC
From: shangxiao Assigned: cbrunet
Status: Closed Package: File_Archive (version 1.5.4)
PHP Version: 5.2.6 OS: Irrelevant
Roadmaps: 1.5.5

Description: ------------ I can't upgrade to the latest version of File_Archive due to the incorrect specification of bz2 being a required extension in package.xml. It seems that it should be an optional extension.

This bug has been fixed in CVS. If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on by the end of next Sunday (CET). If this was a problem with the 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. I fixed it on CVS. It's true you can use File_Archive without bz2 extension, but then you will not be able to handle bzip2 archives, and some ZIP archives.

The keyword here is "optional"

btw, you should also move zlib to the optional section if you can use this package just with the bz2 functionality
