Description: ------------ installed Validate_NZ from local package XML file, then later on uninstalled the package. Found that a directory created during the install of that package still existed was still present after the uninstall. Test script: --------------- #prove that the directory does not exist before the test $ ls /usr/share/pear/tests/Validate_NZ/ ls: /usr/share/pear/tests/Validate_NZ/: No such file or directory $ sudo pear install ~/pear/Validate/package_NZ.xml install ok: channel:// $ ls /usr/share/pear/tests/Validate_NZ/ tests $ sudo pear uninstall Validate_NZ uninstall ok: channel:// $ ls -d /usr/share/pear/tests/Validate_NZ/ /usr/share/pear/tests/Validate_NZ/ Expected result: ---------------- would have expected the /usr/share/pear/tests/Validate_NZ/ directory would have been deleted and the last 'ls' command to have displayed an error message. Actual result: -------------- /usr/share/pear/tests/Validate_NZ/ directory remains after uninstall, although it should not.

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