Installing zeppelin from EthPM

I wonder if zeppelin packages in EthPM are official and supported by Zeppelin.
I have installed zeppelin package truffle install zeppelin and installed contracts are pragma solidity ^0.4.11;

:computer: Environment
Truffle 5.0.36

Hi @swkim109,

I would recommend using the latest version of OpenZeppelin Contracts via npm

Apparently there was an OpenZeppelin ethpm package:

According to the ethpm.json file when running truffle install zeppelin the version is 1.3.0.

  "package_name": "zeppelin",
  "version": "1.3.0" 

OpenZeppelin Contracts 1.3.0 is from September 2017.

I don’t recommend making new Smart Contracts using version 4.1.1. I personal prefer the sources from the orignal and keep my environment up to date


Thanks, @abcoathup,
EthPM doesn’t seem to be practical now, I become curious about how often it is used in developing contracts.
