The PEAR elections start tomorrow, if your a PEAR developer you’ll want to read people’s position statements so you can make an informed vote.
I hope these elections will be the beginning of the a rebirth of PEAR. It was a wonderful idea when it started but its been coasting for the last couple years we never did enough to embrace PHP5.
If your wondering what the whole election is about its pretty simple. A month or so again PEAR voted to accept a new constitution. This constitution, created a new position of President (Which only Greg Beaver is running for) and made the PEAR group an elected position (candidate list with position statement follows). The PEAR group’s job is to decide how PEAR should be run and too make this happen.
This election is for a term running May 1, 2007 to May 1, 2008
The following are running for the PEAR Group (Position statements are linked for their names)
