[Pkg-mediawiki-devel] Bug#821720: Bug#821720: src:wikidiff2: PHP 7.0 Transition

I tried to change the dependencies and verify it works with PHP 7.0 on
Stretch. It’s the first time I create a Debian package, so probably there
are mistakes, but my result is on https://github.com/Seb35/wikidiff2.
The dependencies are updated and I successfully installed it on Stretch,
but there is a segfault. The old code didn’t compile, so I tried to fix
the bug in the returned value (a string) by following
https://wiki.php.net/phpng-upgrading#zend_string_api. It compiles now but
the segfault remains. Is there anyone who can investigate on this?
I created a task on Phabricator https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T134561.

> (~month) timeframe as the transition was announced almost 3 months ago.
> The wikidiff2 package currently build-depends on php5 php5-cli php5-dev .
> PHP 7.0 has landed in unstable with substantial changes to the packaging:
> 1. Every package built from src:phpMAJOR.MINOR now include
> phpMAJOR.MINOR in the name, so f.e. php5-fpm is now php7.0-fpm.
> 2. Accompanying src:php-defaults builds 1:1 mapping to a default
> MAJOR.MINOR version, e.g. php-fpm depends on php7.0-fpm. When you
> specify a dependency, please use the generic name, unless you
> absolutely know that won't work for you.
> 3. Every path in the system has been changed to a versioned, e.g.
> /etc/php5/cli is now /etc/php/7.0/cli
> 4. dh_php5 is now dh_php
> 5. php-pear is not built from independent source package.
> 6. master-7.0 branches of several extensions (php-apcu, xdebug,
> php-apcu-bc) can be used as a template how to change the PHP
> extension packaging. It's mostly cut&paste since the d/rules tries
> to figure-out most of the variables from debian/ directory.
> 7. pkg-php-tools package now supports PHP 7.0 packaging and if your
> package uses pkg-php-tools a simple binNMU is all it might need
> 8. PHP 7.0 has changed extension API, so most-if-not-all extensions
> need work from upstream to be compatible with PHP 7.0.
> 9. We expect to ship next Debian release (stretch) only with PHP
> 7.0, that means that all packages needs to be made compatible with
> PHP 7.0. Fortunately the PHP 7.0 is mostly compatible with properly
> maintained software. However some extensions has been deprecated
> (f.e. mysql) and thus old unmaintained software will stop working
> and it will have to be either patched or removed from stable Debian.
> So what you need to do:
> Replace every occurence of php5 with just php, e.g. if you depend on
> 'php5' then you just need to depend on 'php'. Also if you package a web
> application and depend on specific SAPI, I would recommend depending just
> on 'php' package and let the user decide whether he will install php-fpm,
> libapache2-mod-php or php-cgi.
> The script that was used to get the list of packages for MBF was not a
> particular smart one (so it doesn't detect alternatives, etc.), so if
> there's a false positive, please excuse me and just close the bug with
> short explanation.
> The other options that might be used with packages that don't and won't
> support PHP 7.0 is to remove the software from Debian by changing the
> title of this bugreport to:
> RM: wikidiff2 -- ROM; doesn't support PHP 7.0
> reassigning it to ftp.debian.org pseudo-package and changing severity to
> Also feel free to contact the maintainers at one of the lists:
> pkg-php-pear at lists.alioth.debian.org -- for PEAR related packages
> pkg-php-pecl at lists.alioth.debian.org -- for PHP extensions
> pkg-php-maint at lists.alioth.debian.org -- main PHP packaging and catch-all
