Pump.io update 1

[The story so far: I'm packaging pump.io for Debian.]

4 packages uploaded to NEW:

  • node-webfinger
  • validator.js
  • websocket-driver
  • node-openid

2 packages eliminated as not needed:

  • set-immediate - deprecated
  • crypto-cacerts - not needed on Debian

1 package in progress:

  • node-databank

Got my eye on:

  • oauth-evanp - this is a fork with two patches, so I need to investigate the status of those.
  • node-iconv-lite - needs files downloaded from the internet, so I'm considering how to add them to the source package
  • dateformat/moment - there's an open discussion about combining Node.js modules, and I'm wondering if these are affected.

Thoughts

Currently I'm averaging around one package upload a day, I think? Which would mean ~1 month to go? But there may be challenges around getting packages through the NEW queue in time to build-depend on them.

Someone has asked my temporary Twitter account whether I have a pump.io account. Technically, yes, I do - but I don't post anything on it, because I want to run my own server in the long term. As part of running my own server, I always find that easier if I'm installing software from Debian packages. Hence this work. Sledgehammer, meet nut.

I'm afraid I have turned off comments for this blog, because of all the spam. Let's face it, I didn't read them anyway. Feel free to email me.
