Description

Based on the Stack Overflow thread:

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/24691314/npm-publish-patch-for-earlier-major-version

The idea is to have a way to release a patch for the older major or minor version of packages, with one command:

npm run publish:legacy

This is usually necessary when adding bug fixes or security patches to the earlier versions of WordPress. We are about to run into this issue for WordPress 5.3.1 release:
#18932.
