This update broke the symlinks in our tar files: chmod: cannot operate on dangling symlink ‘vendor/bin/robo’ Before 1.4.4 we had correct symlinks: ls -la vendor/bin/robo lrwxrwxrwx 1 web web 26 Dec 21 16:14 vendor/bin/robo -> ../consolidation/robo/robo After 1.4.4 we had broken symlinks: ls -la vendor/bin/robo lrwxrwxrwx 1 web web 26 Dec 21 16:14 vendor/bin/robo -> consolidation/robo/robo

The fix in #23769 also performs a path reduction to the link but this will break any relative link (e.g. '../link').

This bug has been fixed in SVN. If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on pear.php.net by the end of next Sunday (CET). If this was a problem with the pear.php.net 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.
