Package: phppgadmin
Severity: grave
Tags: patch
Justification: renders package unusable

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?
     Simply PHP 7.0 stopped accepting old syntax of php 5, and php 7 is
     now default
   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
     simply downloaded php7 compatible version from git:

     However its not from original developer and didn't have time to
     check differences between new and old source and if there were some
     security holes.
   * What was the outcome of this action?
     was working, but seems like nobody is maintaining phppgadmin :-(

     According one note I found on the internet, PostgreSQL 10 is no
     longer compatible with phppgadmin 5.1, hope somebody will takeover
     over development.

     I would expect at least to set dependency to old php release not to
     php7, best case scenario, you will implement the version from
