Package: php4-pear
Version: 4:4.4.0-2
Severity: minor


As far as I can tell, Debian Policy suggests that the current contents
of /usr/share/php/docs/<PEAR_PACKAGE> (and even
/usr/share/php/tests/<PEAR_PACKAGE>) should actually reside under

We have discussed this several times on the debian-webapps mailing list,
and there have been no differing opinions. If you disagree, come over
and discuss it.

The reason that I care about what php4-pear does, is that is the example
that packagers of Pear packages will follow, so things should be done
right from the start. :-)
