Would it be a good idea to keep in next release only
node packages matching one of these conditions:
- providing a meaningful binary (not that stupid rimraf,
but marked-man of course yes)
- or depending on node-gyp (keep them because that's what
debian nodejs addons do best, npm sucks at installing
nodejs addons depending on system libs).
- or having a reverse (build-)dependency, or what's the point ?
- or being less than one year (approx.) behind upstream (yes i think npm
or node-postgres should not be in next stable)
If we don't take some action before release, users are going to be angry
of the poor quality of the packages we put in stable.
I have my share of responsibility in that fact, in this email is an attempt
at fixing things... Thank you for considering it seriously.
