This is currently not possible to package because of node-sass, which is incompatible with our nodejs version. This dependency was removed on July 19, but the latest release was published on May 4.

I think we have to wait till the upstream makes a new release.

This has sat in accepted for inclusion for over 30 days. Clearly, there is a lack of demand for the inclusion of this software, nobody has stepped up to provide a completed patch, maintain it, and properly integrate it. Closing as a result. Feel free to reopen but only when someone offers a patch via our proper patch submission methods and volunteers to be maintainer.
