Comment 2 Tom Hughes 2015-12-11 00:21:38 UTC
So we need to figure out what the licensing actually is, because package.json says one thing but the comments in the source say something else.

The schemas should be moved in ${_datadir} per guidelines.

Finally, what's going on with the tests? There are some but they don't seem to work as they use an assert.length that no version of node seems to have?

Comment 3 Piotr Popieluch 2015-12-11 07:31:32 UTC
This whole module confuses me. Upstream seems to be dead. I'm wondering if it wouldn't be better to patch jsprim to use JSV instead of json-schema. 

There are tests in jsprim which test with JSV. JSV is slower but is already packaged.

Comment 4 Tom Hughes 2015-12-11 08:06:54 UTC
It doesn't seem very alive, does it, and it's hard to know what license we could specify... I guess "MIT and (AFL or BSD)" or something?!?

As you say, jsprim appears to support both, and patching it would just be changing the "main" entry point in package.json to point at the other file I think?

Comment 5 Piotr Popieluch 2015-12-11 08:32:12 UTC
I will try to patch it but have higher priorities at the moment (review of lodash, more missing modules for updating http-signature).

Comment 6 Piotr Popieluch 2016-09-28 21:32:00 UTC

I don't expect I will be able to work on this module soon. Not sure if I should close this request or keep it open. 

This is needed for update of http-signature bug: #1179226
