Is anyone rolling with PHP 8 in production? If so, what distribution? Ubuntu LTS (even more recent) is not shipping with it, neither is Debian, or any RHEL 8 compatible distros. Are you rolling with the ondrej PPA or compiling everything yourself?
I've rebuilt a app over the past few months and trying to decide which policy to break to actually put it in prod. I built it needing PHP 8, but either I compile my own PHP packages, utilize a PPA, or...god forbid, run Arch as a production server platform.
Weighing my options, any feedback would be awesome.
Even Fedora looks like it requires adding a third party repo.
Just to add context, I'm sure many are okay adding a PPA, even a trusted one. However, some environments definitely are more strict about where packages should come from, for better or worse, right or wrong, your opinion vs others. In our environment, it's a big enough deal to add an entirely non-default repository which "expands the circle of trust" for our platform. So most ideal scenario is a distribution I can get "trusted" internally would be able to run my PHP 8 app out of the box.
