Yeah, that would make sense.

Yes, this would be contrib.

I'm guessing this doesn't get into Debian proper at all then?  Because I
wouldn't in good conscience let such a package enter the release cycle
(there's no way I could support it).

I did not even know about fastrack, so packaging there may be of limited
value (until it is further publicized, but I guess that's a chicken-or-egg

I'm not necessarily opposed to actually packaging the server, but it has
node dependencies (and there's really no way I can even begin to tame
that nightmare).

Will fastrack be OK with a build that is basically npm install? I can try
building something like that.
