Re: OpenLayers 3
I'm giving up on the OpenLayers 3 packaging, because packaging Node.js
projects is too painful. There is no acceptable solution to the small
Node.js module bundling problem among others.
The small Node.js modules need to be bundled in other packages because
FTP-master won't accept separate packages when their binary size
(excluding /usr/share/doc and other meta information) is less than 5kB.
For more information about the FTP master stance, see the 'Small Node.js
I've made some progress packaging the OpenLayers 3 dependency chain,
But I won't be able to complete it.
I will be orphaning the Node.js packages I'm the only uploader of in the
The packages in question:
node-gaze (still requires nextback & absolute-path, see #784350)
node-minimist (node-optimist dependency, has no other Uploaders)
I will remove myself from Uploaders of the following packages:
I've asked FTP master to REJECT the Node.js packages I've uploaded that
are still in NEW, these are:
node-after (also required by Julien Puydt see #789912)
Ross Gammon packaged the following Node.js module, still in NEW too:
I'm not sure if he want to give up on Node.js packaging too, but it's
very likely since there packages are part of the OpenLayers 3 dependency
I'll also give up on the following ITP/RFPs and close them:
I'll leave the git repositories for all these packages on Alioth after
removing myself from the Uploaders field.
