Comment (by SergeyBiryukov):

 Per the [https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/C60K3MP2Q/p1500922170541761
 latest #core-php meeting], the current patch should be good to go, with an
 announcement on make/plugins upon commit.

 A point was raised that adding a "tested up to" PHP version, as suggested
 by @jb510 in comment:17:ticket:40934 and @joyously in
 comment:29:ticket:40934, might also be beneficial, but that can be
 explored in a new ticket and should not prevent the `Minimum PHP` header
 from being committed.

 That said, I've asked for some additional feedback on new header names.
 the current patch uses `Mininum PHP: x.x`, as that's what was initially
 suggested in #WP23880. Given the potential addition of a "tested up to"
 PHP version header in the future, I think it would make sense to mirror
 the WP version headers: `Requires` or `Requires at least` and `Tested` or
 `Tested up to`. Maybe `Requires PHP: x.x` and `Tested PHP: x.x`?

 [attachment:2952.2.patch] is a refreshed patch that uses `Requires PHP:
 x.x`, which
