Bug#862051: Call for vote on allowing nodejs to provide /usr/bin/node

> I call for votes on the following resolution with regards to #862051.
> The voting period lasts for one week or until the outcome is no longer
> in doubt (§6.3.1).
> === Resolution ===
> The Technical Committee recognises that circumstances change in ways
> that make previous resolutions no longer appropriate. In 2012, it was
> resolved that the nodejs package should not provide /usr/bin/node due to
> the historical conflict with the ax25-node package. Node.js is still
> quite popular and the ax25-node package is no longer in stable, testing
> or unstable so the requirement for nodejs to not provide /usr/bin/node
> no longer applies.
> The Committee therefore resolves that:
> 1. The CTTE decision from 2012-07-12 in bug #614907 is repealed.
> This means Debian's normal policies and practices take over and the
> nodejs package is free to provide /usr/bin/node. The migration should
> be managed according to Debian's usual backwards-compatibility
> === End Resolution ===
> R: Approve resolution and repeal the CTTE decision from 2012-07-12.
> F: Further Discussion
I vote R > F.
