To be more precise the question should be:
Remove all leaf node-* packages AND not installing an executable in /usr/(s)bin/
AND not depending on node-gyp.
Because a nodejs module in debian falls in these categories:
- needed by another module
- needed by an executable
- building js libs for a web app
- providing an executable
- compiling a nodejs c++ addon
So a leaf module not falling in these categories is useless in debian/stable.
Attention: i am not asking removal from debian/unstable. Maintainers
currently packaging a tree of nodejs modules won't be affected.
Can anyone help me providing the release team with a list of those ?
