This service maintains Debian packages for multiple PHP releases and multiple Debian/Ubuntu releases, depending on the needs of its customers. Security updates are provided on all the supported packages (see package availability section).

The service is operated by Freexian with the help of Ondřej Surý (famously known for his PHP backports). It complements nicely the LTS and Extended LTS offerings.
