That can't be right.
The extension should be copy&paste from php-src/ext/foobar to pecl/,
sure, but the removal of it from php-src should be done via cvs rm &&
cvs commit otherwise you break bunch of our scripts - especially
version information listing in the manual.

Sounds sensible. Anyways, I would appreciate it if someone who knows would write a howto, so that RMs can verify that things are done properly. I guess in the past Derick took care of a lot of these moves via OS level file system magic. I do not know the details on how this worked. If it was a copy or a move and if there was a cvs rm afterwards or not.
