Tom, you work on Node stuff, right? Do you think any of this might be
useful for packaging and maintaining that in Fedora?
Well from what I understand I don't see how it will help with any of the
problems that we have internally with packaging Node stuff.
I mean assuming you're talking about the node interpreter and node
libraries (ie modules but I'll avoid that name as it will be confusing
here) all being part of a Fedora module then I don't see how it helps at
all because the issue with node packaging is the number of dependencies
within the node stack and the rate of change of those dependencies.
