Good to have it documented!

## General OS / PHP Version / Browser Support

+ New releases should always be compatible with the versions of MacOS 
and Windows which are supported by their vendors (think about OS 
specific PHP functions for example)
+ New releases should be compatible with DBMS versions which are part of 
maintained distributions of the OSes we support

## Documented rendering changes

I don't think we should keep that in (global) variables during normal 
operation. This will only add to the memory hunger we already suffer 
from, while this information is only needed during an upgrade.
Can't we store this information is a special file in an extension, e.g. 
ext_installinfo.php which is only included during upgrades to provide 
this overview?


Thanks for starting this documentation.
