it is very common for many npm modules to ship with compiled files,
whereas in almost all cases the git repository is a better source for ...
source code.

An out of sync CVS should make the debian packager realize it's probably

Also as Pirate Praveen already replied: npm packages often don't ship test

Please reconsider your opinion on that matter, opening bugs won't do any
until we settle upon an agreement here...
