Radomir and Matthias,

Has anyone done an inventory of xstatic packages that are available as
system packages? I ask because I started asking these questions after doing
a cursory inventory and finding few xstatic packages as system packages. It
appeared to me that the common case was the one Matthias noted where the
xstatic package bundles the js libs. That we're actually getting them from
pypi or a mirror. Can someone show me there really are system packages to
replace the xstatic packages?
