Do you base the minimum PHP version on upstream or what is supported by LTS versions of common distros? I see on the download page that you plan to support 4.0.10.x until Jan 1, 2017. Do you have plans to support a version of phpMyAdmin throughout the lifetime of those distros? Is it instead up to each distro to provide a package with backported fixes?

Example distros:

* Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (EOL April 2017)
* CentOS 6.x (EOL November 2020)

Thanks for your time.
