Package request: npm-current
Alpine Linux already packages Node.js 16.x as
nodejs-current. While this is great, it is little to no use without having the associated package manager
npm, which currently has the base
nodejs (e.g. version 14) as a dependency.
The suggestion is to build Node.js 16.x linked version as
npm-current. The naming would be consistent with the other package and could easily be updated in tandem with updating
Node.js 16 is will be the actively maintained version starting next fall, https://nodejs.org/en/about/releases/ and I think it would be good if alpine packages were prepared for that.
