I opted for the missing-sources for those 3 files.

I opted for repacking upstream for strophe.js and jquery.js - as those
packages exist in Debian.

So I've added this line to debian/copyright (and added the watch file):

`Files-Excluded: chrome/content/data/js/lib/jquery/jquery.js

However, strophe does not throw an error, but jquery still does:

E: cryptocat source: source-is-missing

I don't quite understand it. Any ideas?

This seems to be the last missing bit..
