Hi Evert,

I fully understand your concerns. I would have used sabredav 2.0 right away if PHP 5.3
would still have been supported.

ownCloud as of today is running on many RHEL installation where PHP 5.3 is still in place.

We cannot "break" these installations during upgrade to OC7. 
For OC8 we can think about dropping PHP 5.3 - but this really depends on the systems we run on.

But feel free to ping us if you need support in backporting fixes - we are happy to help out!

Regards and all the best,
