Publish composer packages to a project without a group
Problem to solve
You can use the GitLab Package Registry to publish and install your Composer dependencies to your Group right alongside your source code and pipelines. The problem is that there are many cases in which you want to publish packages to your project instead of your group. For example, if you have a project that doesn't belong to a group or if you are trying to publish all of your dependencies to one central project to make it easier to download and share dependencies.
Create a new project-level endpoint for the GitLab Composer repository that will allow PHP Developers to specify a specific project in their workflows.
Currently, some of our tests create
projects without a group, this will then, in turn, fail when a function is trying to use the
group property of a project
This prompted an investigation where it seems not possible to use
parent or a
project instead of a
group to configure a composer package in one's project
