Re: PHP 5.6 EOD of Life Support and Debian 8 LTS.

Hi Thomas

I do not see that anyone else have answered this so I'll try to do that.

If nothing else is stated the LTS team plan to support all packages regardless of whether upstream have declared it as end of life or not.

Regarding php5 I think it is a must to do so, since transition to php7 is non-trivial.
I guess most sponsors stick to oldstable for this particular reason. If we force the users to upgrade to php7 then they can just as well upgrade to stable anyway.

With the end of life support of PHP 5.6 from upstream, do you know if Debian LTS
team will still support php5.6 in the future ?

I'm talking about the packaging of PHP 5.6.40 but also about next
potential vulnerabilities which may happened.

By the way; does PHP 7.0 will be supported by Debian LTS team when
Stretch became LTS ?
