In light of the movement, I think it would be wise to backport 5.2, as all these projects are now stating that they will not support anything less than 5.2

I have tried to use prevu command to backport php 5.2 from feisty and
the following error appeared:

Why go for LTS if the most recent PHP is over a year old?
I thought LTS meant that my Dapper Server would still be support and receive appropriate upgrades and such over the lifetime of the support at the very least.

I would really rather not upgrade to Gutsy to get the latest PHP. I also don't wish to need to compile it myself.
But it really looks like those are my only options.

I mean "Bug #123753, first reported on 2007-07-03" and here it is 2007-12-16 .... I'm not holding my breath, I'm just extremely disappointed in the "Service" offered to those who chose LTS.

In a production web server is not so simple to dist-upgrade without discontinuing services and/or reconfigure several services and settings.

This is very important for many people running Web Servers, espacially on virutal servers with config software like plesk!

Desperate for this. We run Dapper due to its LTS nature but our custom php app needs 5.2+ for json_decode and encode.
