Aaron Wormus has created an “unofficial” PEAR and PECL Weblog titled “Of Pears and Pickles” that tracks news and updates in and about PEAR and PECL. It’s a very useful and informative site, and I’ve bookmarked it and set it up in my Firefox RSS feeds. Good job, Aaron!
On another note about PEAR, I’ve been spending a lot of time working with and learning about PEAR. It’s a great community with a vast repository of PHP classes that is constantly growing with each new proposal (Aaron also notes on his Weblog when proposals have been accepted).
