 > As reported by @johnbillion in #3080, readme validator now displays a
 warning if `Requires PHP` header is missing. This was an oversight, it
 should not be a required header.
 > [attachment:2952.3.patch] removes it from
 `Validator::validate_content()`. cc @tellyworth

 I stumbled upon that by accident and I think it's actually a great idea to
 encourage people to add the "Required PHP" information. Even if they add
 "5.2", that is way more valid than just assuming by default that something
 is compatible with 5.2. As a plugin developer, I'd advocate for keeping in
 the warning.
