Comment (by boemedia):

 We discussed this ticket in yesterday's design team meeting. We agree this
 would be a good way of preventing installation of plugins that don't work
 with older php-versions. However, we find the information on the plugin
 cards kind of overwhelming and the icons not very visible.

 Here's a few suggestions we have:

 * reduce text
 * don't show notification when the plugin is compatible. It should be
 compatible by default.
 * place notification instead of 'rating' and 'last updated', to make it
 more prominent.

 Please find attached the original card design for making the error message
 more visual.

 If there are any questions about this feedback, please feel free and jump
