Downloading things at package build time hasn't been seen in the archive
until recently when some node-* packages started doing this in contrib.
(There are installer packages that download non-distributable stuff at
install time, but that is a completely different topic.)

Anyway, I hope this is a temporary measure and you (i.e. the javascript
maintainers) are working on getting these large dependency trees
properly into main.

Packages in contrib can usually be built in the buildd network (unless
they have Build-Depends in non-free), but your packages will FTBFS there
due to requiring network access. So no source-only uploads ... and
hopefully everything is arch:all.


PS: You'll probably receive a similar bug report for each source package
doing this once someone encounters the FTBFS issue in a build chroot
that forbids network access.
