This week, the PHP team published a roadmap for the Servehappy project, that aims to make people with unsupported PHP versions update to a newer version.
The PHP team is discussing and planning a Servehappy project for some time now. The goal of the project is reducing »the number of WordPress installations running on an unsupported PHP version« as Alain Schlesser writes in his post »Servehappy Roadmap«. This is nothing the team can influence directly, so they created secondary goals which should lead to the achievement of the primary goal.
These secondary goals try to make users aware that they are using an unsupported PHP version, educate them, and provide them with resources so they can update PHP to a newer version. Before continuing work on that project, the team wants to know if that project is worthwhile and if there is a general buy-in from Core leadership. More about the goals and proposed roadmap can be found in Alain’s post.
