Hi, we all know ZF1 reached EOL long time ago.
The really bad thing of ZF1 is that it still is a rock-solid framework: I have many legacy apps in production, all with 100% code-coverage that happily run without bugs nor (known) security holes; all of them must keep running due to legal constraints but none of them have the money for an upgrade.
What I would like is:
- Respect ZF1 LICENSE.txt, a BSD-3-Clause
- Fork the latest release - or something similar, like getting in charge for the purpose
- Clearly state the purpose of the fork:
- Keep ZF1 running without blocking errors on newest PHP versions
- Drop support for previous/old/unsupported PHP versions when above point can’t be satisfied
- If above points are satisfied, accept trivial-and-tested bug fixes
- Reject any API changes, extensions, new features, optimizations etc
- Discourage, like now, any usage of the fork beside updating PHP version for legacy apps
Issues for the goal:
- Old PR with
[no signed CLA]tag: have no idea how to handle this
Zend_Versionexecutes an external call to
http://framework.zend.com/api/zf-version: I would like to deprecate this class as I do not want to alter anything outside the fork, like the zend.com website
Any suggestions are welcome.
