[arch-general] "npm" package issues

i (according to the pacman log) explicitly installed npm-check-updates.
(i've just now removed it; i think i installed it when i was initially
flailing around, trying to understand the npm-verse.)

in terms of arch packages, the arch package page

says the arch package npm-check-updates depends on the arch npm and
semver packages.  in addition, npm-check-updates depends on a large
number of *npm* packages, including the one you mention,

in addition, the arch *npm* package includes (the npm package) "rc".

it's a convoluted it world out there.

cheers, Greg

ps -- that every web site i build has its own local copies of all the
npm packages used for that site is both a (simplification) boon and a
(disk usage) shame.  but, i digress.
