On my way to package tryton-sao, the JavaScript web client for Tryton[1], I am
currently stuck with the dependency chain of some Node.js submodules.

A cutout of the chain in question is:

tryton-sao
 - [node-]po2json
  - [node-]nomnom
   - [node-]chalk
    ├─ ansi-styles
    ├─ escape-string-regexp
    ├─ has-ansi
    ├─ strip-ansi
        └─ ansi-regex
    └─ supports-color
        └─ has-flag

There is basically an ITP for chalk[2] leading to
[Pkg-javascript-devel] Small binary packages[3]
as well as 
[Pkg-javascript-devel] Small Node.js packages in NEW[4][5]
saying finally, that binaries < 5K shouldn't enter the archive.

To summarize the current situation for the dependency tree
depicted above we have in the archive:
node-has-flag
node-strip-ansi

AFAIU the solution at the time being is to provide the small missing snippets
as patches for inclusion into the tarball (until evtl. some sort of
nodejs-modules will be created to bundle various small modules)(deducted from
[6]).

Before proceeding further I would like to get an ACK from the side of
pkg-javascript-devel (that this is the way to go) as well as from ftpmasters, if
such a package will be allowed to enter the archive.

Thanks to all for your input,
Mathias
