[pkg-php-pear] New Symfony 2.8 and 3.0: what about Stretch?

Hi Daniel and all,

With the beta release of 2.8 and 3.0 just published, I was wondering about
the version that will be shipped with Stretch.

2.8 (as 2.7) is an LTS version, supported until Nov 2019 (2.7 will be
supported until May 2019). 3.0, on the other hand, will only be supported
until Jan 2017, and the following LTS version should be 3.3, but will only
be released on May 2017, i.e., after the freeze began.

I guess we should then target 2.8 (or eventually 2.7 if there is a good
reason not to bring 2.8) for Stretch, so we could start working on 2.8,
and target experimental for the time being.

Once 2.8 will be ready and uploaded to Sid, we could start working on the
3. branch, and release that in experimental, but that shouldn’t be our
first priority (WRT to the upcoming Stretch release).

Does that sound OK, or did I miss something ?
