Package: php5-common
Version: 5.4.3-5
Severity: important
Tags: upstream

I have tried to tweak the error_reporting variable in /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini
to mute warnings about PHP-4 compatibility problems in my Drupal 6.26
installation, without success - the only way I found was to set error_reporting
= 0.

Setting the variable to either E_ERROR or E_WARNING produces the warnings
related to strict-ness violations. The documentation leas one to believe that
E_ALL now includes E_STRICT, but this doesn't seem to be the case, since both
E_ERROR and E_WARNING (values 1 and 2) trigger the warnings.

Is this behaviour really intended, or has a small bug slipped in ?

Thanks for a reply.
