Hello @bhubbard, thanks for the ticket.

PasswordHash is an external library and doesn't need to follow WordPress coding standards. It’s also excluded in our PHP Code Sniffer config, see phpcs.xml.dist.

Hi @ocean90,

Any chance we can revisit that idea? It is one file, I checked the original library project, which has been updated to 0.5 with not many changes, also the library file had already been modified from the original project on line 83 to remove the use of getmypid().

The existing changes were done for compatibility/security reasons and are self-contained to still be able to merge upstream changes like done in #16072.

I'm not seeing any benefit in applying a WordPress specific coding standard to an external library or even changing it to use WordPress specific functions which may change the desired output. See also https://make.wordpress.org/core/handbook/contribute/code-refactoring/.
