> I think the npm modules cordova and plugman should be enable and publish with shrinkwrap.
> It doesn't mean that cordova-cli/plugman locks down dependency tree for ever, they can
be updated as needed at any time a new version if publish to npm.
> More info here:
> https://www.npmjs.org/doc/cli/npm-shrinkwrap.html
> http://blog.nodejs.org/2012/02/27/managing-node-js-dependencies-with-shrinkwrap
> This provides multiple benefits:
> - Everyone testing cordova rc test the same code not just the cordova module, but all
its dependencies
> - All users that npm install cordova or plugman get the same code including all dependencies
> - Easier to recreate an user environment, if user reports that is having problems with
cordova@3.4.0-0.1.0 then another cordova contributor or committer wil be sure 100% that is
running the same code as the user.
> - Avoids "it works on my system and not yours" without shrinkwrap it depends when an
user installs cordova or plugman, and if any dependencies inside the whole dependency tree
changes a version
> - Could be use to better clarify ALL dependencies including the versions that cordova/plugman
was tested, so if a downstream distribution or end user wants to know what is a full list
of dependencies to get cordova-cli and plugman working they can take a look at shrinkwrap.json
> - If a downstream distribution wants to redistribute cordova-cli and plugman, then it
has higher confident of what dependencies where use at time of testing and releasing a specific
version of cordov-cli/plugman, and if it wants to distribute cordova-cli/plugman including
its dependencies it's easier to distribute only the versions that where use at time of testing/release.
