This is very funny. You are putting patch in quotes, but it was a
real patch. It did not automatically update anything because it was
meant to be a simple patch to get work started. I volunteered to
write further patches once I got feedback on that one, and then I got
no direct feedback on it, just occasional passive-aggressive comments
like the above.

The pot is presumably me. But I am not a Node.js person. The Debian
Node.js package maintainers have been friendly and helpful when I
contacted them, and they seem to be willing to help work on including
a nodejs command upstream and modifying Debian packages to use it.
They also seemed willing to remove the node command from nodejs if a
consensus in the project were to develop that that was needed.
Just for completeness, I should mention that Jaime Robles on the
ham radio package maintenance side has been friendly, too.
You have made it clear that you are more interested in punishing
people than in making wheezy better, so I don't think we have anything
left to talk about. I'll contact the technical committee and leave
this in their capable hands.
Thanks for some useful clarifications,
