Package: php-pear
Version: 5.2.6-5
Severity: normal


Any idea why a purged and then freshly installed php-pear only
shows a couple of PEAR packages?

    # pear remote-list
    Channel pear.php.net Available packages:
    Package             Version
    Benchmark           1.2.7

Using ngrep I can see that pear downloaded a file list containing
many more packages like e.g. XML_SVG.

  T -> XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:44627 [A]
  t.package    http://pear.php.net/dtd/rest.package.xsd">. <n>XML_SVG</n>. <c
