Could you please fix this soon?
My vote is to retire the package as upstream doesn't appear to be active anymore and it's a packaging nightmare and violates the packaging guidelines in multiple ways.
Note that the parent bug already closed as "NOTABUG" after
Red Hat Security Response team inspection. So this bug
can simply be closed as well.
For packaging issue, please discuss somewhere else.

I agree. If the package is unmaintained upstream, it's probably good to retire it. But we also need to see if it is used by Fedora users. If so, it might be good to see if someone is willing to take it up.
Please start a discussion about it on fedora-devel list. If no-one comes forward, we'll retire it.

Meanwhile, this bug needs to be closed as a non-issue, since its parent is closed so. I'll do that.
