Opinionated version of Wikimedia composer-merge-plugin to work in pair with bamarni/composer-bin-plugin.

Usage

If you are familiar with bamarni/composer-bin-plugin, you know that you can easily manage several namespaces without impacting your project dependencies. There is however one issue: the composer.json files in your vendor-bin directory are completely isolated from your project root composer.json. It is possible thanks to wikimedia/composer-merge-plugin to change that. This library pre-configure this plugin to work more nicely out of the box.
