Hi all,

I would like to publish PHP 7 packages to our repos soon.I have been 
working on them for some time now and it looks quite fine.

It comes with a catch though as we'd have to remove most third party 
extensions from our repos as they are no longer compatible (some of them 
are also no longer in active development). These modules are:


We'd also need to drop PHP support from graphviz and uwsgi.

We also provide a bunch of PHP scripts packages which I did not test. So 
any help with these is very appreciated. It would be great to get some 
feedback about this. You'll find my repo with PHP 7 packages and more 
information about all the changes at 
https://pierre-schmitz.com/php-7-on-arch-linux/ These packages are 
considered stable and I will provide a smooth upgrade path when these 
hit [extra] (means: just add the repo and you are done).

We might be able to move these package to [extra] by end of this or 
beginning of next year.
