Agenda for the 52nd Mahara developer meeting on Thursday, 28 April 2016, 7:00 UTC

The developer meetings are held on IRC in the #mahara-dev channel. An IRC bot will be used to take minutes of these meetings and agendas made available on these pages before-hand.

Chair: Kristina


  1. Topics from previous meeting
    1. mingard will work on finding and documenting duplicated sections, and maybe do a bit of a proposal on how we should restructure the scripts generally
  2. Your topic goes here
    1. Drop support for PHP 5.3? --aaronw (talk) 18:42, 29 March 2016 (NZDT)
      1. Latest version of PEAR, a Mahara dependency, now requires PHP 5.4 or later. Perhaps it's time Mahara should raise its supported PHP version to 5.4 as well.
      2. We previously discussed this topic 1 year ago, Dev Meeting 43, in April 2015. The decision then was to gather more data about which PHP versions are in use by expanding the site data registration.
      3. The latest stats (from Dev Meeting 50 in Feb 2016) still had 20% on PHP 5.3. I'll try to gather more stats before the next meeting.
  3. Next meeting and chair
  4. Any other business
