Bug Description

There have been a number of microreleases of PHP 7.0 upstream since the
last update to Xenial (which corresponded to the last update in Zesty). As
it has been a few months, it feels appropriate to provide another
MRE update to php7.0. A number of critical security and bug-fixes are
present in each 7.0.x. Rather than backporting individual patches (e.g.,
Bug # 1569509), I believe it makes significantly more sense to follow
the upstream 7.0.x. Upstream PHP is demonstrating an improved approach
of bugfixes only in 7.0.x:

 - 7.0.25: http://php.net/ChangeLog-7.php

The upstream CI is at: https://travis-ci.org/php/php-src and is run
regularly.

Our php7.0 source package has autopkgtests for the 4 SAPIs, mod-php,
cgi, fpm and cli. We have also updated the packing to run the source
tests during the build itself.

I do not believe there is a firm statement from upstream on API/ABI
stability, but the general approach seems to be a BC-break would result
in 7.1.0 (which is present in Artful, and is why the Artful task is invalid).

Brian, was there any problem with the 16.04 upload, or were you letting 17.04 shake out any issues first?

The xenial SRU for this package seems to trigger a lot of autopkgtest failures [1]. Could someone look at those and assess if they're related to this upload or not? This is required for the SRU to be releasable.

So far everyting I've seen is false negatives due to infra issues. I'm retriggering the lot.

I should say, retrigger the lot, once we are allowed to again :)

Nish Aravamudan (nacc) wrote :

The only legitimate bug is php-sabre-vobject-3, which is unrelated to this upload. I will fix it independently.
