Comment 1 Brian Evans Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev 2016-01-11 15:40:13 UTC
Debian has a patch at

I would be willing to apply this along with bug 552838 if no one has objections

Then again, this package will self-destruct with >=dev-lang/php-7.0 without major surgery.

Perhaps we should kill it?
