Hi Kevin,

I didn't know about the snapshots situation and i understand the issues of
uploading archives.

Yes there is an another way to avoid creating a snapshot but as you can see
in
the committed change, it requires keeping track of additional dependencies
manually which involves of checking git hashes every time.

That's why the aport used snapshots and i opted for this solution when i
wrote
it, with git submodules is a lot easier.

Rewriting aport without any sort of advise to the maintainer should be
avoided
in my opinion, i found it rewritten without knowing anything since i don't
use
github and the patch comes from there.

The new build seems to require to update the source file lists with every
new
update too, and this doesn't seem to me a good change. Let just clone gyp
with
another archive then, rather than using something not supported upstream if
possible.

Anyway i am a little busy lately so if there is someone that would maintain
better the package then ok, i don't mind that. I can't hide the fact that
the
previous commit pissed me off a little...

Cheers, Alex.
