 > Yeah I understand those tools won't be updated to sniff the new syntaxes
 for a while yet, I just meant we need to be sure they run on PHP 8.2
 without issue.

 I understand what you are saying, but as sniffs are designed to give the
 same results ''independently of the PHP version on which they are run'',
 it isn't relevant for ensuring PHP 8.2 compatibility for WordPress.

 I mean, even if you run PHPCompatibility on PHP 5.4, it will still flag
 the same PHP 8.2 incompatibilities as when you run PHPCompatibility on PHP

 Those tools currently run on PHP 7.4 and it is not ''necessary'' to update
 that version. Might be a nice to have, but not a necessity. I.e. not
