Re: Node.js and it's future in debian

Can someone please explain to be why it is so unpalatable to
have the Node.js package in the README and in an installation/
configuration message include the following (or similar) message:

Node.js in Debian has the executable name /usr/bin/nodejs
This is to solve a conflict with a package that still exists in Debian
from a time before Node.js.  If you are not going to use the other package,
and wish to maintain compatibility with the upstream Node.js documentation,
tutorials, scripts, etc. please run the following command as an administrator:

ln -s /usr/bin/nodejs /usr/bin/node
