Tanks for the lookup Jérémy !
it says "node-uuid DEPRECATED: Use the uuid package instead."
It appears node-uuid was a fork, then it got merged back.
There are two github projects both confusingly called "node-uuid":
- current: https://github.com/kelektiv/node-uuid is at 3.1.0
- deprecated: https://github.com/brrofs/node-uuid is at 3.0.0
The debian node-uuid source package upstream is the "deprecated" fork.
That's why the tracker says "a new upstream version is available: 3.0.0" and
In the light of these facts I am even more convinced that it should be renamed.
Additionally its upstream should be set to https://github.com/kelektiv/node-uuid
