Description of problem:
The squirrelmail included in Fedora doesn't work with PHP 8.
It was working on F34, and the upgrade to F35 broke it.
There is absolutely nothing in any logs, it just shows a blank page with error 500.
Upstream has fixed this, please update.
ANNOUNCE: PHP 8 Compatibility
Oct 15, 2021 by Paul Lesniewski
The nightly snapshots for versions 1.4.23 and 1.5.2 found on our download page include compatibility for the newest versions of PHP 8. We encourage all SquirrelMail administrators to use a recent snapshot of either version and as always, let us know if there are any fixes, additions or changes you think SquirrelMail would benefit from.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Enabling debug logging in php.ini you can see the errors:
Fatal error*: Array and string offset access syntax with curly braces is no longer supported in */usr/share/squirrelmail/functions/strings.php* on line *634*
Many files have this syntax. Any ETA on at least a test RPM?
package is broken
This package is orphaned. Anyone willing to pick it up?
I have a package built that works. Pretty trivial to build.
How do I get this added to the repo?

Spec file for current version of Squirrelmail
This is what I used to rebuild squirrelmail. Also may need to fix the rpmnew files for dovecot to make it work. (/etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-ssl.conf and /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf.)
