Description Tim Jackson 2005-11-21 14:32:51 UTC
Description of problem:
The php-pear package does not have Provides: for the bundled packages (including
DB, HTML_Template_IT, XML_RPC, XML_Parser etc.)

It also does not have a Provides: for the core package itself (i.e. PEAR, which
is in itself a PEAR package), other than the php-pear package name which is
versioned according to the PHP version rather than the actual PEAR version.

Based on the convention adopted by default when using "pear makerpm" (that is,
PEAR::Package_Name), the php-pear package should include the following Provides: 

PEAR::XML_RPC = 1.4.0
PEAR::XML_Parser = 1.2.6
PEAR::PEAR = 1.3.5

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -q --provides php-pear
Actual results:
php-pear = 5.0.4-10.5

Expected results:
php-pear = 5.0.4-10.5
PEAR::PEAR = 1.3.5
PEAR::XML_RPC = 1.4.0
PEAR::XML_Parser = 1.2.6

Comment 1 Tim Jackson 2005-11-21 16:02:09 UTC
There is of course the related issue of whether PEAR::Package_Name is a good
naming convention in accordance with FC packaging generall. Other obvious
alternatives include:

- php-Package_Name (this emulates the CPAN/pear-Foo_Bar convention)
- php-pear-Package_name

Personally I would choose php-Package_Name to make PHP/PEAR match Perl/CPAN.
Either way, it's worth bearing in mind that the choice may impact on the patch
in on bug #173814, and indeed may require a FC-specific patch to newer PEAR
versions to match the chosen convention, when newer upstream versions that
include RPM dep generation are pulled in.

Comment 2 Joe Orton 2005-12-01 17:26:18 UTC
I'm going with this style:

Provides: php-pear(Archive_Tar) = 1.3.1
Provides: php-pear(Console_Getopt) = 1.2

Comment 3 Joe Orton 2005-12-01 22:23:39 UTC
Done in php-pear-1.4.5-2.  If anyone has strong objections to this syntax please
pipe up.
