There has been some progress on the OpenLayer 3 packaging front.

Progress is being tracked in the BTS with RFS & ITP bugs and their

Progress is also tracked in the Wiki using openlayers task:


npm2deb has proven itself to be very useful in bootstrapping basic
packaging for Node.js modules.

Not all build dependencies for Node.js modules exist, but because
shipping the plain JavaScript source is often sufficient this is not a
big problem.

Help with packaging more of the OpenLayer 3 dependency tree is very much
