I’ve come across several Drupal7 modules that include a composer.json. It seems that this somehow influences how Drupal-CI determines test dependencies. Now I’m trying to find out whether it’s worth providing a

composer.jsonaffect processing in the Drupal-CI?
- What other functionality is enabled by providing a
composer.jsonfile for Drupal7 modules (or themes)?
Note: There seems to be a lot of documentation about Drupal 8 / composer, but nothing specific for Drupal 7 / composer.
Here is a list of some Drupal7 modules with a composer.json:
