I was hoping this could be somethat that would be backed by official PHP and thus can be trusted. Currently there are some unofficial nightly builds, but I’m reluctant to use them due to trust issues.
Clearly we can build nightly images in house, but doing so does not bring any benefit to the community. On the other hand, if there hasn’t been any demand for nightlies it probabbly means noone needs this.
I know TravisCI do maintain a next unreleased release version of PHP on their build system, but that is not really reusable in other systems.
Lastly, I think that the more real world projects grt tested against upcoming PHP version, the more bugs can caught before doing a realease.
Overall, if you think this is something thats not worth the effort of writing RFC I will not proceed with this further.
I'm aware there are php images available on Docker hub, but as their docs
state those are not to be confused with any official php image provided by
Generally, nothing prevents anybody from building a set of docker images
the second after PHP tag is released. The only "official" thing is
always that git tag, the rest are derivative anyway.
So, if you or somebody else wants to build those images, no approval of
any type is required. If these prove useful and consistently available,
we could link to them in the documentation, but otherwise I don't think
any approval is needed for doing something like this.
