Thanks, I deleted composer cache and added
to composer.json but that didn't resolve the problem. I should check again.
I like the idea of metapackage, I'd just change the versions `to 1.1.*@stable`.
How composer figures out package versions when you are using both an explicit repository configuration AND packagist.com is a bit murky. The current pull request /works/ which is the important thing. I tried using version 1.1 originally and got some rather strange errors where the JImage package required JInput 1.0-beta and would not be satisfied with JInput 1.1
The upshot is, unless this pull request is merged somehow into https://github.com/joomla/joomla-framework I can't do any more testing on version info.
If "they" create a new branch in https://github.com/joomla/joomla-framework just for the meta package[call it meta] then I could use the Composer "version" "dev-meta" for testing and nail down the version info so it can be "released".... [IE @dev is one of a few possible correct versions for an unreleased metapackage - since it has no version. However, it should not be tagged with a release version until the config is updated to point to specific versions]
