There is already an open bug for this: #510168.  I was thinking about 
splitting the docs and examples out atleast.  That would reduce the size 
substantially.  I don't know if it makes sense to do so for the assets 
etc. as it is unlikely that the widgets would be used without them unless 
you were writing your own theme or something.  As for the widgets, I 
invite ideas for how exactly to divide them up.

At the time the package was last updated, the git repository wasn't 
publically accessible.  Now that it is I agree it is a better "source" for 
the source.  However I should note that if you just want to see the 
uncompressed/unobfuscated javascript code, that is already included in the 
package.  Each widget comes in three flavors, widget-min.js is the 
compressed version, widget.js is the uncompressed version, and 
widget-debug.js has added support for logging to a javascript debugger.

It looks like you didn't.  Cc and mail-followup-to to 
pkg-javascript-devel at lists.alioth.debian.org added.
