A packaging relationship refers to the PHP composer.
Composer is a tool to install PHP packages similar to
pip for Python and
npm for Node.js. It should not
be pulled in as a packaging relationship.
In Debian, the
composer is dealt with in other ways, such as
phpab, which generates a static autoloader.
Maintainers of PHP-related packages may not be aware of all of the conventions since many such packages are maintained by individuals who are not associated with the PHP PEAR Maintainers team.
