Hi, I've seen there was an update in bower registry to point to


The problem is that the new bower package has the dist files in dist folder, whereas the original one had them in root. This leads to 404 error in the application configured with the old package.

Will the files be moved or should we flush our caches and update the links?

Thanks, Filip

Caches should not need to be updated. Only the new tags have the distributed files in the dist folder. We recommend not auto-updating minor versions of packages. Updating to the latest version will be a switch (source modules are also included), but previous versions have the distributed files at top-level just as before.

I think it's not entirely true. The tag 2.1.0 from components/jquery and the tag 2.1.0 from jquery/jquery lead to a different package structure.

I'm OK with wontfix, though, I just wanted to know if this is going to be adressed to not switch our configuration back and forth.
