Comment (by jrf):

 And just as a general note for anyone now panicking:

 WP 5.9 is currently in **early** development.
 As a general best practice, plugins/themes should be tested against stable
 versions of WP and against the alpha/beta/RC of an upcoming version, with
 this latter build potentially being allowed to fail.

 We're nowhere near WP 5.9-alpha yet, so please give us a little time to
 finish these changes.

 Things like the scaffold command will be taken into account and if needs
 be, small changes will be made to accommodate, but let's first get the
 bulk of the changes to fix the PHPUnit cross-version compatibility for
 WordPress Core committed.

 If you're interested in what more is upcoming, please watch the live
 stream as linked above, which is available as video on demand, in which
 the changes are discussed in detail and/or peruse the PRs when they are
