** Description changed:

- TBC
+ There have been a number of microreleases of PHP 7.0 upstream since the
+ last update to Xenial (which corresponded to the last update in Zesty). As it 
has been a few months, it feels appropriate to provide another
+ MRE update to php7.0. A number of critical security and bug-fixes are
+ present in each 7.0.x. Rather than backporting individual patches (e.g.,
+ Bug # 1569509), I believe it makes significantly more sense to follow
+ the upstream 7.0.x. Upstream PHP is demonstrating an improved approach
+ of bugfixes only in 7.0.x:
+ 
+  - 7.0.22: http://php.net/ChangeLog-7.php
+ 
+ The upstream CI is at: https://travis-ci.org/php/php-src and is run
+ regularly.
+ 
+ Our php7.0 source package has autopkgtests for the 4 SAPIs, mod-php,
+ cgi, fpm and cli. We have also updated the packing to run the source
+ tests during the build itself.
+ 
+ I do not believe there is a firm statement from upstream on API/ABI
+ stability, but the general approach seems to be a BC-break would result
+ in 7.1.0 (which is now present in Artful, and is why the Artful task is 
invalid).
