Task Todo List PHP 7 retiredment

2022-01-08 - Pierre Schmitz

php7 packages were introduced to ease the transition from 7 to 8 as PHP5-Code would throw warnings did not work with version 8 anymore: https://archlinux.org/news/php-80-and-php-7-legacy-packages-are-available/ php7 packages will be removed soon.

This list contains packages that still depend on php7. Most actively maintained projects do support PHP 8 by now and we simply need to adjust dependencies. Packages that are no longer in active development should be removed from the repos; we might want to write a combined announcement for these.

I did look into most of these packages; see https://lists.archlinux.org/pipermail/arch-dev-public/2022-January/030610.html for details.
