Attention! Moving libraries for PHP and other packages to a separate archive

Due to limitations on the size of the archive on Launchpad, I had to split the packages archive into two:

  • packages – for packages that are kept up to date
  • backports – for libraries and packages that have to be checked back into systems or ported from new releases

The packages archive now depends on the backports archive. Like other archives like php* .

Some packages are not building without errors anymore for Debian 8.

Official support discontinued too.

Plus I already not using this release for my projects, servers and virt.machines.

So should I continue build packages for that release? Or it's time to cleanup archive and not waste time for builds?


Solution: Support is extended for another 1 year. The new poll will be 2023-01-01.

But it’s time to get ready to move to Debian 10/11.

A survey to understand which architectures / processors are in priority.

As a result, there will be builds only for the most used architectures.


Decision is made:

  • Supported architectures remain: x86, x64, armHF, arm64
  • For arm64 architecture after 2022-01, the assembly will be for the RaspberryPi 4B processor (Cortex-A72)
