Does BL want to be considered for support of NodeJS 5?

+ curl -sLf -o /dev/null 'https://deb.nodesource.com/node_4.x/dis … en/Release'

## Your distribution, identified as "bunsen-hydrogen", is not currently supported, please contact NodeSource at https://github.com/nodesource/distributions/issues if you think this is incorrect or would like your distribution to be considered for support

## Confirming "bunsen-hydrogen" is supported...

Re: Does BL want to be considered for support of NodeJS 5?

Their 'run this script and it automatically installs' approach is utter crap. They rely on lsb_release output to determine the distribution and a hardcoded list of distro relationships, i.e. 'Mint' is based on 'Ubuntu', use 'Ubuntu' settings. All the information they could need is  present in  /etc/os-release, where it is declared that BL is a Debian -- this is now even Debian standard (if it runs systemd). They need to fix their stuff.

We won't change lsb_release output because that would break python-apt (more precisely, bunsen-python-apt-templates) (again).

I'll see if I contact them about inclusion or not, I do not expect swift reactions in any case. You can always just add the repository manually or install via npm.

Re: Does BL want to be considered for support of NodeJS 5?

Wow! I am glad that I wound up on the right team, though it is clear that it is only but luck and guess-work on my part, as I don't even understand the wherefores there. I only asked because I am without the wherewithall to do things like compile installs and such, presently, and this thing "nodejs" and "npm" too, BTW, seem to be "central" element of the stuff I want to begin messing with.

It seems that much of the "new" "fun" stuff is going the way of NodeJs and NPM ...at least the things that appeal to me:

so far:  Google's Web Dev Learning Tool: "Coder"  | A silly package called "castnow" that allows for linux command-line driven chromecasting.  | and all things "geo" and web nowadays like Mapbox

And I only asked because when I have attempted to install these two "tools" before, it seemed to hose my system, as I probably didn't do it right. And yea, I do understand that these are, generally, "server" tools, but I am able to (mostly) play with a LAMP environment lately without getting bit too hard----though I still stay away from virtual boxes and the arrogant Apple/Ruby fanatics with their "easy" solutions.
