Any #nodejs developers interested in taking up this challenge?
Yarn 2.x already moved to babel 7.x but there is no stable release for yarn 2.x and it is completely different from yarn 1.x.
This will help us ship yarn in #debian (we already moved everything else to babel 7.x but could not port this yet) for next stable release bullseye.
It would be useful to nodejs developers to make initial installation of yarn easy.
@paolog tried packaging yarn 2 and this is what he found
Quoting part of it,
"the tarball is 180 MB (up from ~70 MB for yarn 1) and has all dependencies needed to run yarn (!) including monaco-editor (?) from Microsoft (the code editor which powers VS Code), react-icons, 6 versions of the typescript tree (version 3.75, 3.95 and 4.1 and three patched versions) etc."
Thanks a lot Akshay for helping here and which also makes it possible to remove babel 6 from #debian.
Thanks also to Paolo for maintaining yarnpkg. Its a bit of relief that all your packaging work was not lost as not shipping yarn in bullseye main would have been a big disappointment.
