PHP 7.4 Release Manager Selection

Hi all!

With the first alpha of 7.4 due in three months, I think it's time to
start the process of finding and electing release managers for the next
minor release of PHP.

We are looking for two souls to take on this role.  Whomsoever is
elected will be guided and helped by Stas and me, as well as previous
RMs and the excellent documentation in php-src:README.RELEASE_PROCESS.

Candidates should have a reasonable knowledge of internals (without
necessarily being a C guru), be confident about merging pull requests
without breaking backward compatibility, doing triage for bugs,
liaising with previous release managers, and generally getting the
branch in good shape, as these are among the activities you will be
undertaking as release manager.

Please put your name forward here if you wish to be considered a
candidate.  An initial TODO page has been added to the wiki and contains
provisional dates for GA and pre-releases:
<https://wiki.php.net/todo/php74>

Hi all,

It would be nice to hear from Peter , do you want to take on this role ?

You would have my vote, obviously, but we like people to volunteer, it's
not a small or short commitment.

Cheers
Joe

First of all, thank you for the nomination and suggestion. Yes, of course, I'd be honoured to do that part. Overall, it's no secret I still have a lot of catching up to do as far as PHP core is concerned, but for the PHP 7.4 timeframe I can do that and will do my best to provide quality releases on the set dates. If you think that I'm the correct person for the PHP 7.4 release manager role already, let's do it... I also wanted to say that the quality level of the current PHP 7.2 and 7.3 release managers is really outstanding. I'll do my best to catch such level. Thank you and have a nice day forward from my side. -- Peter Kokot

Excellent. Thank you Peter for accepting the call.

Seconded. They've all been there when I had questions and have made the process smooth and predictable. Remi, Sara, Christoph, and Stas: thank you.

Peter Kokot is willing to volunteer as release manager (thanks!) Is someone willing to team up with Peter? Are there further candidates? -- Christoph M. Becker

Great! Since we only have two volunteers, there's no need for a vote. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you your PHP 7.4 Release Managers: Peter Kokot and Derick Rethans I suggest that both of you walk through the “New Release Manager Checklist”[1] soonish, since it may take a while to actually get the required karma (unless already granted).

And on that topic, did we come to a consensus on whether or not 7.4 was going to have an extended support cycle the way 5.6 did? If so, how
long was it? -Sara
