Update the PHP stack in Fedora to latest version 8.2.x.
Fedora has a 6 months cycle, PHP a 1 year cycle, our common practice for some years:
- 2 Fedora cycles for each PHP minor release (exceptions below)
- 3 Fedora cycles for latest minor (e.g. 5.6 or 7.4) to give more time before next major
- 1 Fedora cycle for first major (e.g. 7.0 or 8.0)
