I tried to address the most important issues, so as to have an
acceptable npm package.
Please see :
http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=collab-maint/npm.git;a=blob;f=debian/changelog

Note that debian/copyright and debian/copyright_hints are now synched.

i put debian/TODO here :
  * Package ./node_modules/* that have a valid license, and since there is 
already
    a good reason to DFSG-repackage, exclude them from tarball using
    DEB_UPSTREAM_REPACKAGE_EXCLUDES in debian/rules.
    + modules not from upstream author are already dependencies and excluded,
    + modules from upstream author and having a valid license are listed in
      debian/copyright.
  * Generate html and man pages from ronnjs. Exclude them too.
    + nodejs >= 0.6.12 ships node-marked. Check if npm will use that tool.


Regarding this TODO, i propose this roadmap :

* release now
* leave forever bundled
  "modules from upstream author and having the same license as the npm package"
* package progressively
  "modules from upstream author and having a valid license"


Jérémy.
