For security, I think this is a very low risk, as I don't think any application use an _autoload feature without any check on input.
As the revert to php <= 5.3.6 of is_a() behaviour is an (late and hardly discussed) upstream decision, and lot of other projects are really hostile to this change, I think we can include this in a 5.3.8 update in fedora.
Some other distro choose to not publish php 5.3.8 because of this.
@Joe, your thought ?
My thoughts: what a mess. You were right to be cautious about this change!
It looks like the change to revert to the old is_a behaviour has been committed upstream to the 5.3 branch (r317183) so I don't see a problem with pushing that fix in Fedora updates. I presume that commit alone is sufficient to fix this issue?
Yes this single patch is enough.
I will do it
