It's not on the list above because it's a "legacy driver", not a
"short lived" branch[1]. It's not relevant in this context what happens
to the 304 branch, the context being a cleanup of intermediate branches
that were abandoned and surpassed by "long lived" branches.

I see no open security bug report for this. If we had one of those, then
we could write a package.mask entry for both xorg-server and
nvidia-drivers with a reference to the security issue, or add the
branches that are now masked for removal. That way people can plan
their hardware's obsolescence properly or shift to a different driver.

Kind regards,
