Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : node-thenify
  Version         : 3.3.0
  Upstream Author : Jonathan Ong <me@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> (http://jongleberry.com)

* License         : Expat
  Programming Lang: _javascript_
  Description     :  Promisify a callback-based function
 Some features of this module:
  - Preserves function names
  - Uses a native promise implementation if available and tries to fall back to
    a promise implementation such as bluebird
  - Converts multiple arguments from the callback into an Array, also support
    change the behavior by options.multiArgs
  - Resulting function never deoptimizes
  - Supports both callback and promise style
 An added benefit is that thrown errors in that async function will be caught
 by the promise!
 Node.js is an event-based server-side _javascript_ engine.

This module is in build dependency chain for babel-preset-env. Babel is a transpiler to use never versions of _javascript_ today.

I would like to join _javascript_ maintenance team. Praveen has already agreed to sponsor this package.
