We are package *maintainers*.

If you have not realized, we are discussing about maintaining an
existing package. I think you have also not realized the meaning of
maintained packages. The person who did the initial package need not
the maintainer of the packager for ever. When there is enough
in the package, it will remain maintained else it gets removed.

I did the initial npm packaging. At that moment i was optimistic
upstream wouldn't add or change dependencies too much. I was wrong,
npm is constantly adding/removing modules through the months and
years, requiring a lot of maintainer work to keep up.
I think Jonas was pointing out that updating npm today won't actually
solve any issue regarding npm maintenance. Some company should fund
that work.


Can this discussion please not be on debian-release? Thanks.
