Details are providing some security-patches for current
php-versions. (I do not mean the hardening-patch)

For example the patch fixes some
problems which are not yet fixed by a new release from More
information at

I think we should add the security-patches to our php-package and do not wait
until a new release comes out.

I attached a patch for the PKGBUILD which adds the current security-fix. This
PHP-Version is working on without any problems.
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Fixed
Additional comments about closing:  These should be fixed in php 5.1.6 by now. PHP 5.1.6-4 contains a security fix for another bug.

PHP 5.1.5 released. Does it contains fixes for all security problems, or this patch is still required?

I hope so. The changelog seems to be very similar.

I think all these security fixes are fixed in 5.1.6 (but package maintainer should check this anyway). I doubt that PHP team doesn't care about security fixes, or forgot something. They just doesn't release an immediate security patched versions.
