 > What about people using regular up-to-date version of php, i.e. 8.0 + ?

 We're currently limited to using whatever version of PHP is deployed in
 WordPress.org production, currently that's PHP 7.4, but PHP8 is on a
 roadmap. There's no current specific timeframe.

 PHP8.0+ currently accounts for < 6.5% of recent WordPress installs (ie.
 WordPress 5.7+) and < 7.5% of the latest version of WordPress.

 As such, there's no general benefit for WordPress users (NOT plugin
 developers) to either a) remove the PHP lint checking, or b) rush the
 systems team on deploying PHP8 before they're comfortable switching
 production over to it.
