Ah I see... Drupal 8 only works with 8.2.7 because we've got Drupal.Functions.FunctionDeclaration in our phpcs.xml.dist

Shouldn't dropping rules only occur in major versions?

Now that people use phpcs.xml files all over the place we should not drop classes anymore. Let's put back an empty class, mark it as deprecated and remove it in a future 9.x version.

Here's a patch that reverts the breaking change.

Alternatively you can just do git revert d39172e

Nah, I would rather like to rely on upstream PHPCS code which also comes with a fixer.

Empty class should be enough, right?

That's a breaking change because people with it in phpcs.xml are going to assume it is testing something.

Maybe we can just extend from the Squizz class...

Here's a way of fixing it whilst still maintaining the sniff. It does mean we get some double testing but that's going to be necessary if we want the improvements that the change included.

Hm, another approach would be to restore the sniff and disable it ruleset.xml. That way we can deprecate the class while leaving it intact and we avoid double errors reported.

But then we lose test coverage - right?

klausi’s picture

I don't think so, since the only test coverage for this old sniff is in bad.php. That is tested with all rules defined in ruleset.xml.
