Astonishing. I’m quite surprised. I thought PHPUnit was fairly well integrated into PEAR (pear run-tests). I’m not sure if this is a fork, or if PEAR will continue to use PHPUnit as an external dependency?
I’ve never been a PEAR fan. My experiences being peripherally involved with the XML_HTMLSax package weren’t encouraging. However, my opinion of PEAR has turned around in recent years thanks to work such as channels in the pear installer and MDB2.
I hope this doesn’t end up a fork. I see little sense in that. I’ll be interested in seeing the PEAR response.
