Severity: wishlist
Tags: squeeze patch

In squeeze, Sphinx (documentation generator, which is popular in Python world) generates JavaScript code that uses the className function, which was removed in jQuery 1.4.

This is of course a bug in Sphinx that should be fixed (see #629329). However, the buggy code ended up in (literally) dozens of packages, many of them being arch:all. Rebuilding them all would be quite painful.

Taking this into account, would you consider patching jQuery in squeeze to add the function back? Patch is available here:;filename=jquery-628642.diff;att=1;bug=629329

Thanks for considering. Still, if you didn't want to implement such change, that would be fully understandable. :)
