[php-maint] Bug#893967: php-defaults: Drop distribution name from package descriptions

The packages in php-defaults have this sentence which is a bit
problematic for derivative distributions:
"This package is a dependency package, which depends on Debian's
default PHP version"
Please consider removing the specific mention of Debian here. Ubuntu
modifies php-defaults to replace "Debian" with "Ubuntu" but that feels
like extra unneeded work.
1. Please drop the Ubuntu "precise" rule from debian/rules since
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS is no longer in regular support status and it doesn't
make sense to backport new php-defaults versions there any more.
2. Please finish the php7.2 transition to allow Ubuntu to sync this
package. See the final comment at
