Thanks for this feedback

With the JsSIP move to Node, a lot of dependencies were added and I had
to package all of them, including node-websocket.  You can see the
package details for node-websocket here:


Debian and Ubuntu only allow one version of each dependency on each
system.  To use node-websocket >= 1.0.22 in Debian stable (via
jessie-backports), we will need to either

a) have node-nan >= 2.0.x in jessie-backports, or

b) adapt node-websocket to support both old and new versions of node-nan
using compiler macros, or

c) maybe we could split the package to have a browser-only version that
doesn't need any of this compiled code?  That would be less painful to
