thanks very much for your guidance!

I've run into https://bugs.debian.org/888989 in the process of trying to
follow the npm2deb instructions on a debian sid virtual machine. :(

If npm2deb isn't fixable in the near term, perhaps there's another
package that has similar layout that i could look to as an example instead?

thanks, this is good to know.

i'm likely to set up a packaging repo for this, using the
git-buildpackage pattern with a debian branch that derives from the
upstream git repo.  Is this something that you'd want in salsa within
the js-team/ namespace (i.e. as js-team/node-openpgp), or should i upload it
as debian/node-openpgp ?  If you prefer the former, i guess i need
membership on the js-team group.
