We intend to provide security support for PHP 5 in Jessie until June 30
2020. Although we cannot foresee all possible issues in advance, we
expect them to be in the same range as in Wheezy. There were also some
bugs in PHP 7 that never affected our PHP 5 versions. This has to be
evaluated on a case-by-case basis again.
