This is never going to be submitted for validation - too much work to be compatible with EPV ...
I'd hope you'd reconsider. I'd consider the ability to search PMs a much needed feature to offer my membership.

I'm involved in running a few forums and generally our policy is unmodified phpBB and only approved and released extensions. If it never gets validated and officially released then unfortunately you've stopped me from considering using it.

The forums I'm involved in have been around since the phpBB 2.0.x days and MODs and we've learned the hard way the maintenance effort required when you are changing the core and applying/updating MODs. IIRC one of my co-admins actually produced a couple of MODs back in the day. The phpBB 3.1.x and above philosophy to keep the core unchanged and using extensions has been a godsend in our opinion and has significantly reduced our maintenance workload when applying software updates.

Ultimately the choice is yours, I've given you my reasons and rationale. Again, I appreciate your efforts to make this functionality available and hope that you'll reconsider and get it submitted, validated and released.
Once again asking whether there are any plans to formally submit this extension so that it can be validated and approved by the phpBB team?

You're making the same mistake as with the other extension (a day ago approximately)
Looking at https://github.com/satanasov/pmsearch ..composer.json and ext.php the path should be
/your forum/ext/anavaro/pmsearch/
We should embrace problems, without which there wouldn't be any solutions.

Usually the info is in the README.md but this is an RC so it is a work in progress, which means you shouldn't install it without at least looking for the info in the extension itself, and the namespace absolutely has to be in there (always).
I suggest you read up on extensions (e.g. https://www.phpbb.com/extensions/installing/)

Probably in vain but my I'll repeat my periodic request/plea as this is a much needed feature to offer my membership.

Why is this important? Per this category's text
Extensions in Development
A place for Extension Authors to post and receive feedback on Extensions still in development. No Extensions within this forum should be used within a live environment!
