Of course I see your point. Nevertheless, I still believe that it is
better to have the CVEs in one package where they will be eventually
fixed then spread across the whole Fedora bundled in all packages,
because I am quite sure this will be the result of retiring js-jquery1.
What reason do you have to believe that the security holes in Jquery 1
will eventually be fixed, if upstream has abandoned it in favor of
Note also that insecure packages will be forcibly removed per Fesco
decision just this week:
You'd have to obtain some kind of exemption from that policy if you
want to keep an insecure Jquery 1 around indefinitely.
