Regarding Dmitry saying that phpng is an experimental branch - that was a
couple of months ago. It evolved, it runs apps in parity with 5.6, and it's
fine to move it to master right now. The alternative - developing 5.7 on
master and creating a synchronization hell - sounds like a horrible course
of action.
I was not able to run PHPUnit using PHPNG at all back when it was first
announced.

I was able to run PHPUnit 4.3 (master)'s test suite using PHPNG last
week, btw. Only one test fails (due to a change in the output of
print_r() for SplObjectStorage IIRC). This tells me that there was a lot
of progress :-)
I have temporarily re-enabled the phpng jobs on my CI server to assess
the current situation.

I can confirm that just one test is failing with PHPUnit master. It
seems that print_r is not displaying StdClass properties as it used to:

On the other hand Doctrine master can't even run the entire test suite
due to:

Fatal error: Call to a member function getConfiguration() on null in
/home/atlassian/bamboo/xml-data/build-dir/PHP-DOCTR-PHPNG/tests/Doctrine/Tests/OrmFunctionalTestCase.php
on line 482

(pretty sure it's not a null there: a var_dump before the call tells me
it's an object)

The Revive Adserver test suite fails miserably (86+ out of 274 test
files), mostly due to errors like:

/home/atlassian/bamboo/xml-data/build-dir/PHP-SRC3-BUIL/Zend/zend_hash.c(1369)
: ht=0x29c7aa8 is already destroyed

and some "Call to a member function" errors on object variables that are
mysteriously seen as null.

There's lots of legacy code in there and it has proved to be useful in
past to catch a few uncommon segmentation faults. I'm pretty sure that
there are plenty other applications that can't work with phpng as it is now.

To be honest I don't think we're anywhere near the point where it's safe
to merge phpng to master.

Also, one thing that might have been overlooked is that merging phpng to
master would completely bypass the voting phase on
