I often read questions about how to use an old PHP version on Fedora (which have 5.6) or a more recent version on RHEL / CentOS (which have 5.4).
A developer using PHP often need to test his work with various versions. So here is a description of the Workstation I use daily.
Je vois régulièrement passer des questions sur l'utilisation d'anciennes versions de PHP sur Fedora (qui fournit la 5.6) ou de versions plus récentes sur RHEL / CentOS (qui fournit la 5.4).
Un développeur utilisant PHP a souvent besoin de tester son travail avec plusieurs versions. Donc voici un petit descriptif de la station de travail que j'utilise quotidiennement

The Fedora PHP SIG (Special Interest Group) is back / working.
Here is a quick presentation about how to handle PHP autoloader in packaging.

Continuous Integration is a common concern of all developers.
This seems enough for a project, but for the whole PHP stack, we need to:
- check that any dependency update doesn't break other projects using it
- check that a PHP update doesn't introduce any regression in other projects, as soon as a Release Candidate is released (PHP versions available in travis/github are often a bit outdated)
- check that packaging related change doesn't break anything
The Koschei project is an answer to those needs, by supervising updates in rawhide (development branch of Fedora) and launching scratch build of all dependent packages.
As a lot of tools, libraries and framework are available in Fedora repository, they have been added so they are now monitored, especially:
- PHP (only version 5.6 for now)
- PHPUnit and its dependencies
Instance URL : http://koschei.cloud.fedoraproject.org/
This new tool should have allowed us to detect sooner recent regressions introduced in PHP version 5.4.29 and 5.5.13. So I plan to import next Release Candidate as soon as possible, so we can take benefit of this supervision.
For example, we just detect a new FTBFS in symfony test suite after the update of PHPUnit 4.2.0 (it was a packaging issue, and is already fixed).
Of course, it means we need to have a test suite for each project, and to run it during the package build, but this is, for a long time, part of the good practices.
We'll see how this tool behave, but I think it really brings an important improvement for continuous integration of the whole PHP stack.
This is also, and mostly, a tool for which results should give benefits to each project, proving the usefulness of projects collaboration (upstream / downstream), and giving even more interest, for each project, to be available in a downstream distribution, such as Fedora.

I've just upgraded my laptop from Fedora 18 (Spherical Cow) to Fedora 20 beta (Heisenbug).
Je viens de mettre à jour mon portable de Fedora 18 (Spherical Cow) vers Fedora 20 beta (Heisenbug).
Annonce de version : Announcing the release of Fedora 20 Beta.

Smooth installation. Nothing to report. No fun.
P.S. official release date should be Tuesday July 2nd, but I'm not patient enough, in fact, I'm rather late as I'm used to install alpha or beta..
Installation nickel. RAS. Même pas drôle.
P.S. la sortie officielle est prévue pour Mardi 2 juillet, mais je ne suis pas patient, en fait je suis même plutôt très en retard car j'installe habituellement l'alpha ou la beta.
