Hello. I'm trying to get js-jquery1 to build on F24, and was wondering if anybody in the Node.js SIG could help me. See forwarded message below with all the details from devel@lists.fedoraproject.org.

Well the Node.js SIG are probably the people to ask, but I can't see any
builds on koji, so if you want help you're going to have to point us at
the build or give us some more information about the error you are seeing.

I figured I'd ask for help first, before spamming this list with details :)
But, the failure is reproducible with mockbuild. Here's a scratch build which failed: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=16675312
I can check with the Node.js SIG (I didn't realize such a thing existed).
If you're planning to update from 1.11 to 1.12 then I would have to ask
if that is even appropriate in a released version anyway...

That's a good question. I'm not sure. It really depends on what API changes upstream is making, and who depends on the js-jquery1 compat package. At first, I would have said yes, to get the security fix for https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1399547 . However, I now realize that the patch they had applied to 1.12 for that was never released, and was instead reverted in all branches before 3.0, which isn't even packaged (yet) in Fedora. So now, the options are to backport the fix to the versions in Fedora... or to ignore the issue until we update to 3.0. Even if we ignore, it doesn't resolve the question about what to do with the compat packages for jquery1 (and maybe a future compat package for jquery2).

Whether or not we upgrade or backport a security fix, I can't proceed at all on the F24 branch right now.
