Hello everyone. I just have a question about the composer.json file. Is it considered "bad practice" to add your own property to it with a value?

Or would that be something that can just be added into the extra property

That's what extra is for yes
The danger would be a future version of composer using a new key that collides with yours

It shouldn't in reality collide. Now do you happen to know off hand if packagist's API returns that info? I'm mobile and at work so can't really check. I'm just thinking of some ideas
