I was thinking of packaging npm (by packaging individual modules)
working full-time for around one month. I plan to launch a crowd-funding
campaign similar to ones launched for packaging grunt[1] and gulp[2].
Before going ahead with that, wanted to know the status of your plan of
packaging npm. Is your plan still on or shall I go ahead with my plan?
