Package: nodejs-dev
Version: 4.7.2~dfsg-1
Severity: wishlist
Affects: npm npm2deb node-gyp libssl-dev

Dear NodeJS Maintainers,

since the upload of 4.7.2~dfsg-1ΒΈ npm is no more co-installable with
libssl-dev which is rather annoying.

Full dependency chain causing this issue:

* npm depends upon node-gyp
* node-gyp depends upon nodejs-dev
* nodejs-dev depends upon libssl1.0-dev
* libssl1.0-dev conflicts with libssl-dev

It would be nice if that chain could be broken somewhere as any
non-development package pulling in a non-default development package
which conflicts with a default development package is very annoying.

Maybe a solution similar to the one for apache2-dev can found:

> apache2 (2.4.23-8) unstable; urgency=medium
>   * Move the mod_ssl_openssl.h header and the dependency on libssl-dev to a
>     new package apache2-ssl-dev.  Packages that interface with openssl
>     state from mod_ssl must build-depend on this new package.
>     This will help to disentangle the build-deps in the openssl transition.
>     Closes: #845033
