Ticket #31353 (closed enhancement: fixed)
npm: build from release tarball instead of git
|Reported by:||ryandesign@…||Owned by:||ciserlohn@…|
I'm breaking this request out of #31315.
npm currently fetches from git, but the developer of npm suggests that we should really be fetching the release tarball. This would obviate the need for us to manually build the documentation, allowing us to simplify the port again by undoing most of what was done in r84119, r84252, and r84253. Unless there's a reason I don't know about why we're building from git, we should use the release tarball.
