For Fedora, we're also running horizons unit tests during package build.

I would assume the same is true for other distros as well.

Because our build system is not allowed to pull anything from the
internet, we rely exclusively on already available software packages.
Due to the license (good not evil), we can not have jslint as package.
For the given reason, pulling it from the net during build doesn't work

Another warning: users expect development as essential and to be
available, because they might require them to CUSTOMIZE horizon.
