I am using Composer "composer update" via a cronjob to daily update an instance of software and thus run on master. About once a month this fails because Composer returns the following prompt:
The package has modified files
Discard changes [y,n,v,s,?]?
So no update is performed. This is a bit annoying. Is there a way to force the update even with modified files? Documentation at Composer suggests that this is not possible though I cannot believe that it should not.
So I am trying my luck here: Is there something like "composer update --force" or some sort of trick around or am I looking at a lost cause?
