Sometimes it may be useful to specify a patched branch of a particular project. I recently came across an issue where it was not possible to patch a module, but I was able to create an issue branch  and  pull request. Pending approval and review I was still able to reference this branch in my composer file, This was useful in this case as this particular dependency broke the composer pipeline, install update etc. Here I show you how this can be done.
