I think the debate in this thread is about whether it makes sense to
require removing the minimized version from the upstream source when we
don't install that file or otherwise use it in the binary package (because
the binary package depends on the separately-packaged version of the same
Javascript library, which already has both the minimized and non-minimized
version and fully satisfies the DFSG).
