Hi again,

Just a reminder that if you're interested in being one of the PHP 8.0 
release managers, then now is the time to step forwards. I'll be 
starting the selection procedure next week.

cheers,
Derick

Hi,

I think it might be worth to discuss if we want to go for PHP 8.0 at this
time. I'd think that lots of businesses will prefer stability over new
features and resolving BC breaks in the coming months. Also life of many
devs might get impacted. I'm thinking that it would be good to at least
consider if it makes sense to for example branch 7.5 from 7.4 and just
concentrate on stability and possibly additional deprecations. It would
also give us more time to improve 8.0 - at least I plan to do bunch of
things on openssl ext but the current situation makes it a bit harder for
me and I would imagine that it might be the case for others as well.

Cheers

Jakub
