Yes, I agree. Sadly, I don't see, how we can prevent it; some upstream
is quite good in breaking compatibility. Or in this case, upstream
re-organized file system layout of jquery-ui. A different distribution
prevents us (or OpenStack Dashboard) to use a newer version, because
they have too many other packages relying on old layout.
I'm not blaming Debian here, they did a really good job in unbundling
And that still doesn't solve a custom-built versions of JS libs.
custom built versions for JS libs? you're speaking of forks? At least on
OpenStack Horizon, we're lucky and had the chance to forbid it, although
we had some contributors trying to do "quick fixes" in libraries, when
they were bundled.
