Subject: [gentoo-dev] Old-style PHP packages vanishing
Date: Mon, 17 Apr 2006 02:12:40
1 The PHP Herd announces that the old-style PHP packages, which were
2 unsupported and deprecated for months, are finally going away.
3 After months of work, the team considers the new dev-lang/php package
4 and the related dev-php[4,5]/ categories fully ready for production use,
5 and encourage all users to upgrade.
6 Helpful informations can be found at the PHP project’s pages [1], along
7 with a HOWTO [2] regarding the migration to dev-lang/php.
8 The old-style PHP packages (dev-php/php, dev-php/php-cgi,
9 dev-php/mod_php, dev-php/PECL-*, and older dev-php/PEAR-* packages) will
10 be package.masked on Wednesday, 19 April 2006, and removed from the
11 Portage tree about a month later.
