More than that, it provides jQuery itself... I suspect you're
repackaging this for Debian as one of the many xstatic dependencies
recently added to OpenStack Horizon, but those are really more of a
Python Cheeseshop implementation detail to allow people who are
Debian this is probably just going to be seen (correctly in my
opinion) as yet another embedded copy of jQuery, and I have doubts
this will make it through new/ftpmaster unless its goal is to become
*the* jQuery package for Debian.
To reiterate, my understanding is that Horizon added xstatic package
dependencies specifically for the benefit of people who *weren't*
distributions, so at least in most cases distro packagers shouldn't
need to worry about them unless the equivalent JS libs aren't
already in their distros.
