CTTE decision on nodejs (bug #862051)

The technical committee was asked in bug #862051 to revisit the decision in
bug #614907 (conflict between the ax25-node package and the nodejs package).

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 The CTTE decision from 2012-07-12 in bug #614907 is repealed.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