I've just submitted a review request for separating out NPM into its
own package (again). This is being done for a couple reasons:
1) To get rid of the ridiculous release field and take advantage of
the %autorelease macro
2) I'm planning to rework how the nodejs packages work to make
different versions parallel-installable (with the alternatives
infrastructure owning /usr/bin/node). I want to keep NPM in a common
location (/usr/lib/node_modules) so that it will work with whatever
Node is in use.
If someone on this list would be willing to perform the package
review, I'd be appreciative.

npm is the world's largest software registry. Open source developers from
every continent use npm to share and borrow packages, and many organizations
use npm to manage private development as well.
npm consists of three distinct components:
* the website
* the Command Line Interface (CLI)
* the registry
Use the [*website*](https://npmjs.com) to discover packages, set up profiles,
and manage other aspects of your npm experience. For example, you can set up
[organizations](https://www.npmjs.com/features) to manage access to public or
The [*CLI*](https://docs.npmjs.com/cli/npm) runs from a terminal, and is how
most developers interact with npm.
The [*registry*](https://docs.npmjs.com/misc/registry) is a large public
