Hey,

I would like to remove php5 from Tumbleweed.

The impulse to consider it is the plan to switch to openssl 1.1 [0].
Support for 5.6 ended on 19 Jan 2017 [1] and upstream will not
backport the changeset related to openssl 1.1 in 5.6 branch [2].

Of course I am planning to create devel:languages:php:php56 and keep
the current version of php 5.6 building there for Tumbleweed as long
as feasible.

I propose to drop php5 from Tumbleweed at the end of August.

There is no point in keeping this around in Tumbleweed, however I see a
value on keeping it in an OBS project for old distributions just in case
someone needs it, until security supports ends (dec 31 , 2018)

Agreed. Reading this thread reminded me that I still had to move my TW servers
to php7. Some complaints but easily solved. 2 minuted, apache restart. Back.
