Doxygen and embedded jquery problem, how to solve?

Hi dear Debian Developers and Maintainers,

I'm stuck with this jquery problem, and I don't know the best solution for it.

Doxygen creates and embeds a patched jquery version (why they don't extend jquery in another file or rename it to avoid clashes is obscure to me), then symlink can result in a broken documentation.

Many sponsors doesn't sign a package with a lintian warning/error such as "embedded jquery minified version" or so, and so I started making packages with a dh_linktree jquery symlink (I know this is bad, and this is the reason of why I'm here).

So I would like to know what is the best way to solve it, I'm open to avoid all the symlinks in my packages that are currently:
-casablanca (new queue)

(maybe others I don't recall now)

But I would like to do it after knowing what is the best solution for the problem [1].

Shipping minified js is considered a security issue, even for doc package, and the bug seems likely in doxygen rather than in packages using it, and patching lintian is an open bug [2] :)

References I found by googling (and with thanks to some of my mentors)

BTW sometimes the documentation lacks of the jquery inclusion, but this is a debian specific bug

have many thanks for enlightening me!
