Please integrate PAM support into PHP 8. With PHP 7 it is already a pain to use the pluggable authentication system because the PECL extension is not maintained anymore. I fear that with PHP 8 the extension and available patch files will become unusable. Please consider to fully integrate PAM into the origin source tree to allow developers to use this really needed feature. Otherwise i think PHP 8 will become only a toy that can't be used for professional applications anymore.

Well, it should be the other way round: there is this generally
useful and well maintained PECL package; shouldn't we bundle it?
Anyhow, this feature request requires discussion which is beyond
the scope of this bug tracker. Please send mail to the internals
mailing list. I'm suspending this ticket for the time being.

You are talking about https://pecl.php.net/package/PAM? This is not maintained since ages and can not be used anymore since PHP7, i don't expect it will work with PHP8 then. To get it working with PHP7 you need to patch it, see https://github.com/openmediavault/openmediavault/blob/master/deb/php-pam/debian/patches/01-php7.patch (patch was done by Mikael Johansson).
