Remove any hard runtime or installation dependency on pear
List any tickets on http://bugs.horde.org/ that cover this issue or are relevant to it.
The PHP ecosystem has increasingly moved from pear to composer as the default installer. The changed paradigm (global versus local dependency management) attracts many users and developers.
horde-db-migrate "forgets" to migrate or even acknowledge libraries in git checkouts where the pear channel is not present.
components/lib/Helper/Composer.php currently depends on conductor and gets its data from package.xml
anything handling package.xml is broken without pear though. Always need to register the horde channel
rewrite all pear.horde.org dependencies to vcs type dependencies github/horde/
Do we want to keep a whitelist of other channels/packages which should be pulled from packagist or github rather than pear?
(we don't want /vendor/ web-readable)
horde apps are type "horde-application" and get installed to /$appname or base/appname
Installing/updating an app should clear cache and autoloader cache
Check if the app provides a registry snippet in /doc/
write horde.local.php if necessary
installing base should provide some initialization
horde libs are type "horde-library" and get installed to /vendor/Horde/Foo
Maybe we find some trick
Add tool chain to create and update packages on packagist for easier consumption.
