I would like to base a project I have on the cakephp/app repository and think about using composer to achieve this.
What would be the best way to do it? The straight-forward solution would be to download the entire cakephp/app, add my files, and upload it as a new project. But that would make it a bit difficult to update it when you guys release new versions.
How can I create a composer.json which are downloading/installing the cakephp/app files, and then download my own files, and move them into the correct positions?
Guess I could use the scripting possibilities that comes with composer, but the problem with this is that I also would like to let users be able to download my project as a zip-file from github.
Any general advice on these topics?
