We all would like to see Nodejs updated. > I'm kind of amazed that anyone would have to justify upgrading an > ancient release because obviously it has to been done at some point. Noone has to justify. It will happen - that's not the point here. > Sooner rather than later I say.

Changed API may break existing packages currently in Debian. I do agree that those packages should then be upgraded as well, but "working code" is of higher concern to me than "shiny code". That said, I do appreciate your input, David: not commenting on the rest simply means I have no comments on those parts - I expect it to be valuable input for Jérémy. > How can I help get this update to happen? I say getting ready to > update to 0.10.x when it comes out is a good target. Sounds like it would be great if you could join the team and work directly on (branches of) our canonical packaging git. But really I am the wrong one to judge that, as Jérémy is doing all the hard work on these packages. @Jérémy: What do you say - you want a co-maintainer? - Jonas -- * Jonas Smedegaard - idealist & Internet-arkitekt * Tlf.: +45 40843136 Website: http://dr.jones.dk/ [x] quote me freely [ ] ask before reusing [ ] keep private
