Which problem does the folder being named node_modules solve? You would need to set NODE_PATH anyway to make them requireable, and with NODE_PATH, the folder name is irrelevant.

Question: We discussed having all the dependencies in a flat directory structure, and call the root directory node_modules. That way Node will find all dependencies without linking and so on. I see that buster-dev-tools does not install, copy or symlink buster dependencies, but it does not create node_modules. Is that intentional?

Trying out buster-dev-tools on Windows now, looks like it's working fine :) Nice work!

Indeed, it's mainly a) documenting the new options "pull"/"deps" (#136) and b) not recommending npm anymore but rather git only (pull#8 and here on Apr 17th) as far as I see. Maybe explicitly tell ppl to npm uninstall any older. It should be working, though, assuming you're using git only for it.
Anything I missed?

We already had several ppl getting confused so...
I could give it a try on Sunday; or maybe you wanna take care of it, August? I'm a bit short of time at the moment and buster-docs aren't fully working for me yet.

Matthias/August: What's the current status of buster-dev-tools? I'm assuming that these docs are wrong? If dev-tools is currently working, could one of you update the docs to match so I can point people to it?
