FTP Masters do not like that solution.

Vincent's question was due to FTP masters complaining about the
package 'witty', which I maintain and he sponsors.


Witty does build-depend on libjs-jquery (it has for a long time, way
before FTP masters expressed any concern), then minifies it, and
symlinks it. But FTP Masters say the jquery.min.js must be removed
from witty.orig.tar.gz because the non-minified version is not

Given that I'm not using upstream's jquery.min.js at all, I wonder why
I should repackage the source package.

How is an unused jquery.min.js in the original tarball different from
any other unused file (a picture, a README, or anything?) The users is
not expected to modify jquery.min.js ever, if he wants to rebuild the
binaries for witty, he is expected to modify libjs-jquery.
