Is npm driving you crazy by removing your git-based packages every time you install a new package?
They’ve fixed it in 5.7.0! 🎉
npm i -g firstname.lastname@example.org
@aral Haven't followed through, but isn't this the version that some users reported messing with permissions ? 5.7.1 seems to have fixed the issue , so maybe use that instead?
