Well, I haven't uploaded any other xstatic package yet! :)
Only python-xstatic and python-xstatic-jquery are currently in NEW.

I agree. However, seeing how it seems to work, it's looking like having
the xstatic packages is the only way so that Horizon knows where to
search for the .js files.

If so, using which mechanism horizon may find (for example) the
jquery.min.js file then? Currently, within the standard
openstack_dashboard/settings.py, we have:


It is IMO more reasonable to package xstatic packages rather than
applying patches that would need constant rebasing. Also, this helps
making sure the distro package matches the current requirements.txt,
also regarding available versions.

Packaging the xstatic packages will not take a lot of my time. What
will, is the packaging of the Javascript libraries themselves. For
example, I'm not sure how to package bootstrap-scss which, upstream, is
part of some ruby code (if I'm not mistaking. I'm not sure that's the
correct one I'm talking about, because I had a look a few weeks ago...).

Your thoughts would be welcome.
