Description: ------------ 'pear package' command removes optional="yes" attribute of <dep> tag. I found this out when trying to release HTML_Menu, but other packages that (try to) use optional dependencies are affected, too (e.g. DB_DataObject). Sorry if this is already fixed. Reproduce code: --------------- [alex@oc HTML_Menu]$ pear package Analyzing Menu.php Analyzing MenuBrowser.php Analyzing Menu/Renderer.php Analyzing Menu/ArrayRenderer.php Analyzing Menu/DirectRenderer.php Analyzing Menu/SigmaRenderer.php Package /home/alex/cvs/pear/HTML_Menu/HTML_Menu-2.0pl1.tgz done Tag the released code with `pear cvstag package.xml' (or set the CVS tag RELEASE_2_0pl1 by hand) [alex@oc HTML_Menu]$ pear install HTML_Menu-2.0pl1.tgz Expected result: ---------------- Optional dependencies: Package `HTML_Template_Sigma' is recommended to utilize some features. install ok: HTML_Menu 2.0pl1 Actual result: -------------- requires package `HTML_Template_Sigma' HTML_Menu: Dependencies failed

This was fixed already: $ pear install HTML_Menu downloading HTML_Menu-2.0pl1.tgz ... Starting to download HTML_Menu-2.0pl1.tgz (11,428 bytes) .....done: 11,428 bytes Optional dependencies: package `HTML_Template_Sigma' is recommended to utilize some features. install ok: HTML_Menu 2.0pl1

I forgot the password I used for submission and password retrieval does not work, so doing it in developer's hat... Sorry, but I edited the generated package.xml for HTML_Menu manually and uploaded the archive with the edited file as 2.0pl1, thus it works. Try checking out the CVS version of HTML_Menu (tag RELEASE_2_0PL1) and packaging it. This is broken with current PEAR (1.2.1)

please try with PEAR cvs - it is very stable for everything I've tested, including packaging. This was a bug in PEAR_Common that i fixed a while back. Greg

Works as expected with PEAR 1.3b1. Thanks!
