First, thanks to the team at GitHub for allowing me to be an early tester of this product. I'm a regular user of NPM, I publish my own packages, I use it to manage my Node code base. So I'm interested in innovations in this area.

Here are some very basic questions.

  1. Is it either/or? If I use GitHub Package Registry, can I still access packages in NPM?
  2. If I can't, are common NPM packages also available in GHPR? For example, I use nodejs-websocket in some of my projects.
  3. What are some use-cases for GHPR?
  4. What advantages does it have over NPM?
  5. Drawbacks?

These are all questions I will try to answer as I do my investigation, but it would be helpful to get the answers from others first. Might save me some time.
