Hi all,

since Microsoft won't support PHP 8 and beyond, it appears to be
reasonable to fork the microsoft/php-sdk-binary-tools[1] to the PHP org
account on Github.  The PHP-SDK is required to build PHP on Windows[2],
and at least some adaptions to newer PHP versions need to be done[3],
and there is a PR for building for arm64[4], which may be rejected by
Microsoft.

Thoughts?  Objections?

[3] <https://github.com/cmb69/php-sdk-binary-tools>
[4] <https://github.com/microsoft/php-sdk-binary-tools/pull/80>

I have forked to php/php-sdk-binary-tools, and GH support has detached the fork, so this is now a standalone repo. I have also updated the AppVeyor build script and the PECL build machine to use that repo now.

Nothing to do there. This is apparently specific to MSFT repos on Github. Christoph
