This bug report (bug#863963) is specifically for the ‘npm’ package so
let's ignore ‘nodejs’ version for this report.

(If you want to also submit a wishlist report for a specific new

That's a separate issue; if a non-Debian site is giving poor advice,
please convince them to improve the advice. A bug report to Debian's
bug tracker can't fix that :-)
