My history goes back to 2003, when Chris Shiflett launched the phpcommunity.org project. We wanted to provide a hub for the PHP community. We built up a great community on Freenode IRC (we’re in #phpc). Nowadays, @ramsey manages the PHPC accounts & domains and is working to launch a non-profit for the PHP community.

To date, there have been at least 835 PHP RFCs created on the PHP wiki. Not all of these have been brought to the mailing list for discussion or voting. https://github.com/ramsey/php-rfcs

All of PHP 7.2 and earlier are now EOL! These versions will no longer receive security updates or bug fixes. It’s time to upgrade! https://php.net/eol.php
Note that PHP 7.2 is EOL in 3 days. After that, it will no longer receive security updates from the PHP project team. Upgrade now!
I was kinda worried that some bit of the php.net website wasn't going to cope well with the new major version number (due to some quirks in our data structures), but it carried on like a champ.
PHP is really good at running really bad code really well.... even when that bad code is the php.net website.
We had a great panel of people last night at azPHP! All about PHP8!
