Doug, there still is one open question. Distributing JavaScript libraries
via system packages is unusual. Because of that, most of the JavaScript
libraries used by horizon don't have existing packages. Who will create and
maintain the packages for these JavaScript libraries for production? For
example, most of the libraries aren't available as debian or ubuntu

Updating a JavaScript dependency, such as angular, would mean each of the
system packages needs to be updated as well as the Horizon project. Would
would this process look like with packages on different systems needing

Using bower for development and system packages for production doesn't
appear to be ready to start using.
