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

   === 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 The CTTE decision from 2012-07-12 in bug #614907 is repealed.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
