Michal will contact Conservancy and Isaac will prune down README in the next few days. We discussed merging README and README.rst in to one file, but since README is distributed to end users and README.rst is really for GitHub's home page, we decided to leave both as separate files.
Supporting version 4.0
According to our downloads page, support for version 4.0 series will end soon (Jul 1, 2014). Since versions 4.1 and 4.2 required MySQL version 5.5, should the support deadline be extended? Or has MySQL 5.5 enough adoptions for phpMyAdmin to end support on Jul 1, 2014?
We feel it's important to continue security updates for 4.0 at least until 1 January 2015. At that time, support for 4.1 also ends; we may continue security fixes for 4.0 without continuing 4.1 (as users can upgrade easily from 4.1 to 4.2, but not from 4.0 to 4.2 if their MySQL is old). We want to encourage users to upgrade their MySQL without angering them.
