Subject Re: BB10 bundling of node.js
Date Wed, 19 Jun 2013 19:09:07 GMT

I would rather we just use the system version of node which would be the
same version as the CLI.  I can't think of any reason a specific platform
(aka BlackBerry) would need a special version of a common dependency.

Also I don't think you can bundle binaries in an apache release.
