less.js (1.6.3~dfsg-3) unstable; urgency=medium

Stop build-depend on cdbs.

Relax to (build-)depend unversioned on nodejs:
Needed version satisfied even in oldstable.
Update patch 2001 to use executable nodejs
(not nodejs - see bug#862051).
Tighten dependency on nodejs accordingly.

+ Update source URLs.

+ Drop Files sections (and corresponding License section) for files
no longer shipped upstream since before 1.4.2.
+ Extend coverage for main upstream author.
* Update source URLs in watch file and CDBS hints.
* Reimplement build (i.e. mostly concatenation) in rules file:
Upstream is moving to grunt which is not yet in Debian.
Build-depend on libyaml-tiny-perl.
* Install upstream CLI script in library path and symlink to bin path
(instead of patching paths in script).
* Bump debhelper compatibility level to 9.
* Move package VCS to pkg-javascript team.
* Add patches cherry-picked upstream to succeed testsuite with modern

potentially sourceless minified code, and convenience code copies.
Mangle version in watch file (to match default CDBS suffix ~dfsg).
* Update patch 2001.
* Build-depend on and recommend node-source-map.
* Stop build-depend on yui-compressor as fallback: Nodejs needed
