Control: reassign -1 tech-ctte
Control: retitle -1 Rename nodejs back to node for buster, now that
ax25-node has been removed?

Dear tech-ctte,

In 2012, the decision was made to rename Node.js' "node" name to
nodejs-legacy, and transition the existing "node" package to ax25-node.
However, ax25-node (and the "node" package following) were removed in
2015 citing lack of activity:
https://packages.qa.debian.org/n/node.html

Thus, would it be possible to revert the original decision, and rename
nodejs back to node in the next Debian release? Doing so would make
working with JavaScript programs outside of Debian a lot easier, as
projects tend to hardcode the "node" interpreter name.

Best,
James
