Dear Release Team,

As discussed with FTP masters[1], I'd like to request an RC exception
for browserified _javascript_ packages already in the archive.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I haven't seen any replies to the questions
you've got. I'm not sure what I'll think when you do that, but at the moment
this is a nack from me. Packages can still go into contrib if the build tools
can't get ready in time for the release, and then for buster (stretch+1) they
could move to main.

Another question is what build tools are we missing at this point? I have seen
some mentioned in the tech-ctte thread. Mostly grunt, which is ITP #673727. The
main problem there seems to be that jshint is non-free, but it seems[1] that it
can be made optional. Is that not the case? Are there other blockers, aside from
packaging the rdeps[2]? It'd be good to know what we are missing to get these
_javascript_ packages buildable in main, and what is blocking those from entering
the archive.

Cheers,
Emilio
