we have not supported PHP 4 for three releases now, and it's time to
remove it from the archive to avoid shipping unsupported stuff with
known security vulnerabilities. The world has mostly moved to PHP 5
However, there are currently 13 packages that still depend on php4
packages (like libapache2-mod-php4). If noone cares for them, they
will be removed along with php4, but a few of them (like drupal) are
In order to rescue them, they need to get alternative dependencies to
libapache2-mod-php5, php5-cgi, etc. (look e. g. at mantis for an
example). Those changes should be sent to Debian as well.
Is anyone interested in this?
