Using composer to bring in Log4php on a Drupal system on Linux with a GIT repository controlling code.
I have a Drupal site using a couple of modules (fb_instant_articles and amp) that make use of composer. One of the libraries that composer downloads for these modules is log4php.
The other factor in this is that I manage my code through GIT, and have a typical dev-stage-prod setup.
When log4php is downloaded by composer there is a .git file that is included in the library. This basically means that my GIT repository will ignore this directory – and so files won't be added to my repository, and thus won't be passed across to stage or prod. I figured this out after much pain and suffering, banging of head on keyboard
Is there a way that the composer build could exclude this git file? It would save the likely problem that I will have of re-figuring out this problem whenever log4php is updated.
Someone suggested I open a ticket here. If your interested in more of the gory details, they are here on drupal.org
Thanks for considering.
