There has been some debate over what the name of the next major release of PHP, to succeed the PHP 5.x series, should be called. This RFC is an attempt to settle the matter once and for all. This RFC proposes that the next major version of PHP shall be named either PHP 6 or PHP 7, based on the outcome of this vote. In the following arguments for both sides are presented.
PHP Wiki: https://wiki.php.net/rfc/php6
After the vote has been started the RFC was edited by Zeev in order to
strengthen the case for PHP 7. There is nothing wrong with that, adding
additional arguments to an RFC is perfectly fine by me.
However at the same time a number of paragraphs were removed that were
arguing for PHP 6, at least in part. The only thing that was left in “The
case for PHP 6″ was a single paragraph, of which half was really just an
explanation of the general situation.
Effectively the edits made the RFC text heavily biased. It’s okay to edit
an RFC to add arguments for your side, but I find it discourteous and
disingenuous to remove arguments from the opposing side at the same time.
