Comment (by jrf):

 ➕ I fully support updating the `SECURE_PHP` and `ACCEPTABLE_PHP`
 constants to PHP 7.4.

 As for when the `RECOMMENDED_PHP` and `SUPPORTED_PHP` constants can be
 ➖ I personally would not be comfortable committing to any timeline for
 that at this point in time as there are still too many known (and unknown)
 compatibility issues to say that WP (let alone the wider plugin-sphere) is
 fully compatible with PHP 8.0/8.1 (or likely to be at a predetermined
 point in the foreseeable future).

 Regarding PHP 8.2: compared to PHP 8.0/8.1 it is a release which is
 expected to cause much less problems, though the biggest issue (dynamic
 properties deprecation) is still going to be challenging. For a full
 overview of everything PHP 8.2, see #56009.

 > It is assumed that when WordPress 6.1 is released, which will support
 PHP 8.0 and 8.1

 @JavierCasares What do you base that on ? I have seen no significant
 efforts to that effect.
