PHPUnit 5.0 should be released soon (October 2nd or December 4th ?)
This will raise PHP dependency to 5.6
(PHPUnit 6 will require PHP 7.0).
Which mean we'll have 3 diff versions for a few years...
PHPUnit 5.0 with PHP 5.6 in Fedora
PHPUnit 4.8, in EPEL-7
PHPUnit 3.7, in EPEL-6
To simplify generic spec maintainability, I just add a small feature in
5.0, and backported in 4.8 (in updates-testing)
So it could be simple to
if phpunit --atleast-version 4.8; then
: PHPUnit is too old on this platform
Notice all versions < 4.8.9, without this feature, will simply fail
(unrecognized option) and so skip the test suite.
Hope this will help
