ASF GitHub Bot commented on CB-14145:

brodybits opened a new pull request #50: CB-14145 resolve npm audit issues in patch fix
   Please make sure the checklist boxes are all checked before submitting the PR. The checklist
   is intended as a quick reference, for complete details please see our Contributor Guidelines:
   ### Platforms affected
   mac OS ("osx")
   ### What does this PR do?
   - Set VERSION to 4.0.2-dev & update JS snapshot to version 4.0.2-dev via coho, using
local coho with apache/cordova-coho#176 for patch release support (another workaround fix
pushed to apache/cordova-coho#176 was needed to get the JS snapshot to work with old version
of cordova-js). Note that the indentation of package.json was changed by the recent version
of coho.
   - Update the following dependencies, pinned in this patch fix, to resolve the npm audit
     - cordova-common@2.2.5
     - xcode@1.0.0
   - explicit plist@2.1.0 dependency in this patch fix(wanted since plist is explicitly used
by code in bin)
   - pin other external dependencies in this patch fix
   - use jasmine-node@^1.5.0 in devDependencies to resolve npm audit warning in this patch
   - completely reinstall node_modules in this patch fix (ignoring `node_modules/.bin`) using
the following command on npm@6.1.0: `npm install --only=production`:
   - Update `CordovaLib/cordova.js` from cordova-js@4.2.4 (4.2.0 .. 4.2.4)
   - update `bundledDependencies` to support deprecated Node.js 4 in this patch fix
   - remove extra `devDependencies`: coffee-script, nodeunit, uncrustify
   - fixes ported from master:
     - CB-12762: package.json reference repo on github
     - migrate jshint -> eslint, with some more eslint rules turned off in this patch fix
   - add line spacing to .eslintrc.yml
   - enable eslint in tests/spec (with some eslint rules turned off in tests/spec for now)
   ### What testing has been done on this change?
   - `npm audit` with npm@6.1.0 (latest release) shows 0 vulnerabilities
   - `cordova platform add brodybits/cordova-osx#cb-14145-patch` to new Cordova project and
then `cordova run osx` works on deprecated Node.js 4 and Node.js 8
   - `cordova platform add brodybits/cordova-osx#cb-14145-patch` to new Cordova project and
then run from Xcode works on deprecated Node.js 4
   - [ ] TODO: check that Travis CI which includes `npm test` task passes

>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: cordova-android, cordova-app-hello-world, cordova-browser, cordova-cli,
cordova-coho, cordova-common, cordova-ios, cordova-js, cordova-lib, cordova-osx, cordova-plugman,

>            Assignee: Chris Brody
>            Priority: Major
> From private discussions I discovered that running {{npm audit}} on a number of components
would report dependencies with security issues. While we could not see any {{npm audit}} issues
that may affect applications built using Cordova I think it is extremely important to resolve
these issues as soon as possible. Most affect devDependencies used for testing of Cordova
itself; a minority seem to affect Cordova scripts that may be run by Cordova application developers.
Better safe than sorry!
> I would like to resolve this issue as follows:
> * patch release of common library components such as {{cordova-common}}, {{cordova-lib}},
etc. (fixed in minor release branch)
> * patch or minor release of other affected components such as CLI, Cordova platform implementations,
major plugins, etc. (expected to be fixed in minor release branch; do not want to pollute
the master branch with extra reverts, updated node_modules committed, etc.)
> * {{npm audit}} issues resolved in master branch for next major release, which should
NOT be shipped with any {{npm audit}} issues lurking
> * {{npm audit}} step added to CI for both patch release and next major release
