Apparently I fucked that up. I didn't look well enough to see that it
was already packaged.

I'm sorry about that, and I will revert my upload by restoring the
previous version with an epoch unless there is no objection to the 1.0.3
version, then I will merge Jérémys packaging changes back.

How do you want to proceed Jérémy?

My ITPs and RFPs for the openlayers project all go to the javascript
list too.

I'm also using the wiki to track the progress:


For such a loosely coordinated team, that seems the best I can do.

The avoidance of readable stream was not documented, and there was an
RFP documenting the need for a package even though the package it was
originally needed for didn't require it anymore.

I'm happy that I'm finally getting some feedback even though its
triggered by a fuckup of mine, at least there is some dialog going.

Please give more advice for the packages in the openlayers dependency chain.

Interesting page, but not very informative. And also not linked from the
Nodejs page, making it not very easily discoverable.
