Re: Bug#758402: ITP: python-xstatic-jquery.quicksearch -- jQuery.quicksearch XStatic support

Hi David,

Thanks for this message. I would welcome indeed any change to this long
description, reviewed by the d-l-english team!

These are copy/past from the upstream stuff, but as it is often the
case, it shall be improved.

I do believe this is relevant. The point of the XStatic packages is that
they are available using "pip install", which make them universal. This
is a very good "selling point" for Python developers, and will push them
to use XStatic rather than embedding static files directly in their
python module/app.

Of course, this can be changed to something like "it is also easier to
build virtual envs, which will work in any distribution" if you think
that's more relevant.
