Hi debian javascript maintainers--

> * Package name    : eslint
>   Version         : 0.4.5

>   Description     : tool for static analysis of ECMAScript (JavaScript™) code
>     ESLint is a tool for identifying and reporting on patterns found in
>     ECMAScript (JavaScript™) code. It performs static code analysis to find

>     In many ways, it is similar to JSLint and JSHint with a few exceptions:
>     .
>     * ESLint uses Esprima for JavaScript parsing.
>     * ESLint uses an AST to evaluate patterns in code.
>     * ESLint is completely pluggable, every single rule is a plugin and you
>       can add more at runtime.
> One reason this package is attractive for ECMAScript developers is because

Is anyone in the javascript team up for packaging this?  It appears to
available in npm, fwiw.

Enigmail is now using eslint upstream as part of the test suite (they've
switched to it from jshint to avoid the crappy jshint license), and i'd
love to be able to run the full test suite from within debian during
enigmail package builds.
