Re: Is anyone maintaining (the ham radio tool) node?

Just to be clear: both package names are fine --- it's the names of
the binaries that cause trouble.

Being a user of neither package, I'd actually prefer for the name of
the javascript interpreter to stay "node" (sorry!).  It is the
difference between needing to change the configuration of one
superserver and needing to change the shebang line and content of many
scripts.  However, if the only way to include both node and nodejs in
wheezy is for the interpreter binary to be renamed, too, that's ok
with me.  There's currently a release-critical bug against nodejs
about that.

Should the binary on the ham radio side be called ax25-node, or
LinuxNode, or something like that?  Given a proposed name, I would be
happy enough to assume I have your blessing and start sending patches
to the node bug. :)

Glad to hear from you, and thanks for your hard work keeping the
amateur radio stack working.
