[openstack-dev] [horizon] static files handling, bower/

So just to be clear, as developers we:

1. have a bower.json listing the bower component to use,
2. use bower to fetch and install those to the bower_components directory
at the top level of the Horizon repos checkout, and
3. manually edit static_settings.py when we add a new bower component to
bower.json so it knows the appropriate static files to load from that

Is that correct?

The above will increase the burden on those adding or upgrading bower
components (they'll need to check the bower.json in the component for the
appropriate static files to link in) but will make life easier for the
re-packagers since they'll know which files they need to cater for in
