I want to replace the old spidermonkey package from community with the
new version released couples of months ago called js 
Is going to be used by gjs/gnome-shell in the future version but i want
to backport it right now because gjs doesn't support xulrunner 5.0 and
is blocking the update.
The problem is that js185 has a pkgconfig now mozjs185.pc and new soname
called libmozj185.so instead of libjs.so.
I want to ask the maintainers of couchdb, elinks, freewrl, gpac,
mediatomb, mongodb to look at their packages and see:
1) if they can add support for mozjs185 (if upstream support it and
2) if 1) is not possible, I'm willing to add libjs.so for compatibility
but you need to test if is compiling against it and that is working
For testing use this PKGBUILD:
Compatibility is commented out for now and you need to uncomment if needed.
Please report back on private or on aur-general.
