Composer supports an option named 'provide' which is described as:
List of other packages that are provided by this package. This is mostly
useful for common interfaces. A package could depend on some virtual
logger package, any library that implements this logger interface would
simply list it in provide.
Check for example
This package provides an implementation for
jackalope/jackalope-transport, but the package name is
Currently this is not supported in Flow, installing a package like this
will result in an error like:
Fatal error: Uncaught exception
'TYPO3\Flow\Package\Exception\InvalidPackageStateException' with message
'Could not find package with composer name
"jackalope/jackalope-transport" in PackageStates configuration.' in
on line 304
Looking into this I was wondering ow we should implement this, we now
just check if the exact pacakge is installed, but a check with this
option would more be something like 'is there an implementation for this
package installed'. So should we distinquish in errors for example?
Just some thoughts before calling it a day, wanted to write it down
