Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1300475
Is it possible to update v8 to a version that supports generators?

Description of problem:
I would like to use the node-file-manager module in some code I'm writing, but it requires v8 to have generators. The version of v8 shipped with fedora 23 seems very old and doesn't have this feature.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
v8 is shipping 4.10.15 now.
I see from this bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=832886 that you were holding back the version of node in fedora for chromium. However, I don't see that chromium is packaged anymore by the fedora project.
Nodejs is getting updated in rawhide and using a bundled v8 rather than the system copy. I looked at updating the system copy of v8 (which is being used by rubygem-therubyracer), but it doesn't support current v8 builds.
I'm not comfortable making a major change like this to Fedora 23, and the feature you need in node is already there (I think) in Rawhide without changing this package... so I'm closing this CANTFIX.
I've made a copr for the v8 package work I did before I realized it was a bit futile, in case someone else finds it useful later:
I want to say (belatedly) thanks for looking into this, and thanks for posting the copr.
