Enforcing LTS or Current Versions of the Symfony Components

the same version. But when using the standalone packages, Composer might
install dependencies in a different major version (
is compatible with

This is fine if you don't want to stick to Symfony LTS versions and if your code does not use these transitive dependencies.
This package allows you to force Composer to always use an LTS or current version of Symfony Components, whether they are explicitly listed as a project's dependency or installed transitively.
For example, without this metapackage, running
composer update may result in
upgrading some packages to unsupported versions:
By requiring this package, Composer will ensure you never

This package is similar to
but instead allows mixing and matching of different major versions provided
