The DrupalConsole Launcher is a stand-alone full CLI application.

On the latest DrupalConsole release the Launcher aka the global executable is a stand-alone full CLI application. Yes, it was like this before, but at some point on RC releases when the per-site installation was introduced we removed global commands and most of the Launcher features, but after receiving feedback and analyzing the benefits, we decided to bring back the Launcher as a full CLI application.

Help us complete the Drupal Console stable release
Why are we asking for help? The Drupal Console as many other Open Source projects is created and maintained with the effort and free time of contributors and maintainers, which is great but, sometimes the community requires those tools earlier than the contributors can produce using only in their own time. One example of that is the Drupal 8 Accelerate program,  d8rules funding program, and D8 Module Acceleration Program with the aim to bring to the community those products as soon as possible, getting money to sponsor contributors office hours to complete those products. Our situation is not so different from other projects, even though the core maintainers have some hours per week sponsored by our employer or business. But this time is not enough, and we need to use our personal time to continue with the development. We need to assign more time to check the issue queue, currently with 200+ pending issues and feature requests, to provide support on the Gitter channel, to do a much better work with the documentation, and improve the test coverage.
