I'm wondering if we still need to support PHP 5.3.
I'd rather bump the minimum version up to PHP 5.5,
and know people have
been talking about doing the same for MediaWiki itself. My question is
if this can already be done without making Wikibase undeployable on WMF
servers. Is everything running HHVM yet, or is there some stuff relevant
to Wikibase that still runs an unsupported version of PHP?
The main blocker is that work machines like tin and terbium are still on
precise which comes with PHP 5.3. Once they are upgraded to trusty,
they'll have HHVM and 5.5. There's also the imagescalers too.
