I would like to bring up a point that is not unique to this RFC, but more to deprecations in general. For PHP 7.0 the migration at least for my company was pretty smooth, but it was greatly helped by PHP 5.6 having extended support. The thing was that we went from PHP 5.2 -> 5.6 -> 7.0. Now for PHP 7.4 there was an earlier discussion this year I think to have extended support, but it never materialised. So I believe that one should weigh in that as it currently stands PHP 7.4 don't have extended support, meaning it should be an even better case to approve deprecations RFC's for 8.0. Regards //Björn L
