Variables needs to be upgraded to a newer version of phan, our PHP static analysis tool. This brings in
over 2 years of upstream improvements and lots of bug fixes.
Please follow the instructions on how to migrate at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Continuous_integration/Tutorials/Add_phan_to_a_MediaWiki_extension#Migrating_from_phan_0.8.0.
Please also set the Gerrit topic for all patches related to this effort with new-phan-plz.
