[geeklog-devel] PEAR we go ...

The Geeklog version in CVS now uses PEAR::Mail to send all emails. In
config.php, you can select one of the following methods to send your emails:

- 'mail', i.e. use PHP's mail() function
- 'sendmail', i.e. use sendmail
- 'smtp', i.e. talk directly to your SMTP server

Since this is a pretty big change, I'd like to get some feedback on this,

I've tested all three variants locally (PHP 4.3.3, compiled --without-
pear). I've also updated geeklog.info. My hosting service is still on PHP
4.2.3 but has PEAR installed. 'mail' and 'smtp' works with that setup
(haven't tested 'sendmail' there).

I'll try and update another of my sites with a slightly different setup
but would like to hear from other installs. Anyone running on Windows?

Since it doesn't make sense to add the PEAR packages to CVS, I've put
those that Geeklog needs in a separate tarball:


Unpack that _inside_ of /path/to/geeklog/system/pear/. Actual Geeklog
releases will include those files in system/pear, I just didn't want to
add them to CVS.

I've also updated the nightly tarball, so that it already contains these

bye, Dirk
