Thread: Why was php5-sqlite3 removed from lenny?

  1. Why was php5-sqlite3 removed from lenny?

    On Tue, 29 Apr 2008, packages php-sqlite3 and php5-sqlite3
    were removed from unstable and testing (see Bug#478479).
    However, I don't see exactly why...

    Julien, you stated that PHP5 now supports SQLite3 natively
    and with PDO, but it's not true (at least in version 5.2.6-5)
    and, even if it where true, I think we should keep
    backwards-compatibility with all the PHP scripts which are
    using sqlite3_* functions.

    Right now, there is no way to use sqlite3 with php5 in lenny. So,
    please, consider adding it back to the distribution (or offering
    another solution).

    Thanks,

    I use sqlite3 with PHP 5 and PDO from lenny, and it works.

    OK, I've find it, it's in "php5-sqlite" package. I didn't expect
    to find it there because AFAIK that package used to have support
    for sqlite version 2... I think it would be nice to add something like
    "This package allows you to access SQLite3 databases".
    That way, people (like me) will find it when doing
    "apt-cache search sqlite3 php".

    An now, another question: I know I can use PDO to access sqlite3
    databases, but, why not keeping the old sqlite3_* functions,
    to avoid having to change all the existing code?

    Thanks,
