Hi Efraim,

Overall it looks good to me. I also checked npm┬╣ and it agrees that
there are no dependencies for this package. Do you happen to know why
there's a test directory installed? I don't know if it's supposed to be
there but it seems strange to me

I didn't notice and I agree that tests shouldn't be installed but IIUC it's a limitation of the node-build-system that copies recursively the contents of the node_modules directory. I checked and it seems that other packages using the node-build-system have the same problem (i.e. node-color-name install test.js, node-far installs a test directory). One way to fix this could be adding an extra phase (either to each package or in the node-build-system with a special field indicating a list of tests directories) where we delete the test directory from node_modules preventing the copy.

On my system I get

orang3@frastanato ~/code/guix [env]$ du -sh /gnu/store/5kkb1nya9ws12b2qxsn0r7904nx6v5b5-node-semver-7.2.1
732K    /gnu/store/5kkb1nya9ws12b2qxsn0r7904nx6v5b5-node-semver-7.2.1

orang3@frastanato ~/code/guix [env]$ du -sh /gnu/store/5kkb1nya9ws12b2qxsn0r7904nx6v5b5-node-semver-7.2.1/lib/node_modules/semver/test/ 264K /gnu/store/5kkb1nya9ws12b2qxsn0r7904nx6v5b5-node-semver-7.2.1/lib/node_modules/semver/test/

which is not much but amounts nearly to 1/3 of the total disk usage of semver. If you believe that another phase deleting the tests would be better I attached an attempt.
