[Pkg-javascript-devel] Debian javascript URLs

Hi all,

Fedora packager here (don't shoot! :)

Fedora is currently planning some Javascript guidelines[0], and the
subject of Debian compatibility came up during the discussion.
Specifically, we're trying to decide how best to serve the Javascript
libraries out to the web.

I saw that the Debian "javascripts-common" package contains an Apache
alias for "/javascript". How has this been working for you? In light
of [2], will this URL scheme be changing sometime soon? If so, what is
the future URL going to be?

We were thinking of implementing something like
"_sysassets/javascript", and I thought it might be nice to check with
you guys to see what the future holds for Debian in this area.

(Lastly, please keep me in the CC on this thread, as I'm not
subscribed to the list)
