Hi Ondřej,

For the last upload of those, we decided to stick with the php5
extensions as long as php5 is around in sid. Are you only removing
dh-php5 or php5 itself?

I think this is a good idea for twig.
@David: Any objections from your side against this approach?

Upstream is undecided whether or not to provide a PHP 7 version of the
extension [1]. Thus not building it at all is our only option for now.

I only had a quick look on it so far, the php-twig.README.Debian should
be updated, since it now mentions the non-existing PHP extension - but
the rest looks good. Thanks a lot for your work.

I check on twig as soon as possible (hopefully before Monday). If you
could do the upload, that would be great so I do not need to bother
David doing it for me.

Yes, there will be no PHP 7 extension and it thus is safe to permanently
remove it from the packaging.

That's alright.
For stretch we target the 2.8 series of Symfony, since it is an LTS
series. I thus cherry-picked your commit into 2.8 - again, thanks for
your work here.
