npm maintenance needs a lot of help, great !

This is the main part of the job.
So many dependencies are typically "for npm use only", so it'd be nice to
use uscan/multiple tarballs features to package them together.
I don't have that time right now.

Sure ! You could work on a branch of npm pkg-javascript repository,
and ask me for reviewing it and merging it. If all goes well, after that
review, you'll work directly on master branch.

I wanted to get in touch with people in the javascript team before

That's also something quite time-consuming.
