With the announcement that Drupal.org composer endpoints are now, having been available for some time, out of beta:
“Composer is a tool for dependency management in PHP. It allows you to declare the libraries your project depends on and it will manage (install/update) them for you. …Composer is strongly inspired by node's npm and ruby's bundler"
As well as announcing this on Drupal.org, they also acknowledged the contribution made by Appnovation, whose continued dedication to the Drupal community is as strong as ever:
“We'd also like to thank Appnovation, who sponsored the initial development of Drupal.org's composer endpoints”
Specifically, Appnovation’s Tim Millwood was also mentioned, due to his important role in this Drupal community initiative.
