Description: ------------ The addDependencyGroup() method in PackageFile/v2/rw.php does not validate the group name. So PEAR_PAckageFileManager will add the group and the PEAR installer will complain after releasing the package that the group name is not valid. A patch (untested) is available at Test script: --------------- $package = new PEAR_PackageFileManager2(); $package->addDependencyGroup("invalid-group", "This cannot be used"); Expected result: ---------------- Raising a PEAR_Error Actual result: -------------- No error raised.

A "fix" will require a bit more that your patch provides. PEAR_Validate::validGroupName only valids agains a regexp. --Pierre

But it validates exactly against the same regexp that is used while installing the package. BTW: You are one of the maintainers, feel free to fix it for real and don't complain about my patch... I don't care about the internals of the installer as long as it works. All I did was check, whether its easy to fix for me and attached a patch. If this is not all that's needed I'm sure Greg will fix it for good. He already emailed me that he will fix it for PEAR 1.41.

Stephan: you have the right idea, this should be validated at package time, but the place to do validation is inside PEAR_PackageFile_v2_Validator, so I'll stick it in there. This will therefore have the desired effect by preventing creation of the package.xml in the first place from PPFM

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.
