Hello everybody,

if you run composer install or update to install a fresh flow/neos
instance, composer in some cases installs composer/installers AFTER
typo3/flow -- leading to extremely weird errors.

We finally pushed a pull request [1] to Composer. While it does not fix
the root cause, it prevents the error from happening.

You can find a patched pre-built composer.phar which includes the bugfix at:


Hopefully this eases the pain for us, and it should fix the #1
deployment error we've experienced...

Please also help us in voting for the bug at [1]/[2], so we get that
soon fixed in composer itself.

Best Regards,
