[pkg-kolab] Bug#514007: Please add horde PEAR channel in horde3 package

Package: horde3
Version: 3.2.2+debian0-2
Severity: normal
Tags: patch


We, the Kolab maintainers, have packaged some php-kolab-* packages. The
upstream sourcecode is from pear.horde.org. In fact those are horde

We are using dh_make_php which call "pear install"... which requires
that the Horde PEAR channel is discovered.

I have made a simple package pear-horde-channel that only does this
(registering horde channel). Unfortunately, it has been rejected [1]
because it is too small. The ftp-master ask to find a proper place for
this. It probably is horde3. Comments are welcome.

How to?

Add this to postinst:
case "$1" in
        pear channel-discover pear.horde.org || true


        echo "postinst called with unknown argument \`$1'" >&2
        exit 1

Add this to prerm:
case "$1" in
        pear channel-delete pear.horde.org || true


        echo "prerm called with unknown argument \`$1'" >&2
        exit 1

NB: This is linked to bug #510660.
