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
installing via pip to get the necessary Javascript libraries. For
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*
getting those Javascript libraries from their respective
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.
