Thanks Ted I’ve not thought of it in that way before. I've seen several source releases
that include minified javascript I'm just curious what people think about this.

Do people think it OK to include minified JS in a source release if:
1. It's ASF developed code and the full unminified source code is included as well.
2. The minified JS is 3rd party code, is identified by version (and thus can be checked via
a comparison with the canonical minified version)
