11 It's up to the maintainer... we have no policy against it, but you don't
12 want to commit broken/untested packages to the tree obviously.
14 If the xdebug alpha is "we added php-7.2 support but haven't tested it
15 yet", then feel free to submit a normal version bump. On the other hand,
16 if it's "this new alpha version happens to support php-7.2 but also has
17 new features that might eat your server," then it would be better to add
18 it alongside a package.mask entry that says "masked for testing" or
19 something like that.
