[alpine-devel] PHP5 EOL

Hi there!

I'd like to get opinions on a way how to get rid of php5 & related packages
from edge & 3.9

On 31 Dec 2018 php5 goes EOL
it means no more security updates will be available

In edge there are 3 packages - php5, php5-apcu & php5-suhosin (all in
Also there's 5 packages that depends on php5 - cacti-php5,
phoronix-test-suite, phpldapadmin, rutorrent, zoneminder

I suggest to get rid of php5 packages, fix dependent ones as first step,
filed to track changes

Then makes sense to rename all php7 packages to get rid of *7* suffix.

Also it makes sense to normalize package names for the rest of php
extensions be splitting PECL-based and others. Filed to track this
