Why was the conflict 'php-mcrypt<=7.1' added to php? It now seeks to
remove php56-mcrypt. I require both for older web apps not yet ported to
php7. These packages do not conflict as I have used both for a couple of
years. Now I get:
:: Starting full system upgrade...
looking for conflicting packages...
:: php and php56-mcrypt are in conflict (php-mcrypt). Remove
error: unresolvable package conflicts detected
error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies)
:: php and php56-mcrypt are in conflict (php-mcrypt<=7.1)
Does this need to be fixed in AUR or is there a better way to handle
