Bower is a package manager for the Javascript ecosystem, which doesn’t host its own packages. Instead, it points to Git repositories hosted externally (eg. on GitHub).

Software Heritage archives Bower by querying, which returns the complete database of the registry: name and repository URL of every package registered on it. It then dispatches loading tasks to the Git loader.

Software Heritage currently does not archive the mapping from package names to repository URLs.
