[Project_owners] Mozdev PHP 5 upgrade scheduled for March 31st

Mozdev.org is looking to update its web server stack from Apache 1.3 and PHP 4 
to Apache 2.2 and PHP 5.  The main reason for doing this is to be running 
supported versions of software, as well as providing security and feature 
improvements.

We have been testing the software out on our staging server at vebzom.org and 
are ready to move onto the next stage of testing.  We would like project 
owners to test out their sites to ensure things will be ready for the 
cutover.

The biggest changes with PHP 5 will be the default setting of PHP's 
register_globals and register_long_arrays flags to "off".  See our previous 
thread for information about the implications and some work-arounds [1].

If you are interested in following developments please sign up to bug#15312 
[2].  Let us know if you have any concerns/questions or need any help trying 
to get things cleaned up.  We'd like to make this move as smooth as possible 
while getting our web server stack up to current versions.
