Description

Is there any chance of refactoring the jQuery UI source code enough that it would be compatible with the compontent.js package manager? (ie. separating each 'component' into their own directory)

It would definitely be a pretty monumental undertaking to fully isolate each widget, it's dependencies, and unit tests, but the payoff could be nice for developers and contributors.

If it's not something that can/will be done in core, would the license rule out "forking" the original source and refactoring it in this way for redistribution via component?

Is there any chance...

Not really.

It would definitely be a pretty monumental undertaking...

Yes, it would.

...but the payoff could be nice for developers and contributors.

Doubtful. I think we're up to a million and a half different package managers/dependency trackers/distribution systems. Everyone seems to have their favorite and they all have different requirements.

...would the license rule out "forking" the original source...

No, you can do what you want, but you must retain our copyright notice and permission notice (license).
