> 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?

I don't think we should do it and I also don't see need for that. Both
include PHP 5.3 which is supported by current 4.4.x releases. The 4.0.x
is supported for PHP 5.2, what I think should be really dead by 2017.

We will have to discus EOL for 4.4, which will be quite long as that's
last version supporting PHP 5.3 and 5.4.

BTW: Ubuntu did not care to update even the version they have
shipped with 12.04 LTS, so I really don't see it much security
