Today's riddle: Any chance to repair the soup bookmarklet?

What's broken?
The bookmarklet tries to load a script, which currently fails with a server error.

Can we find an old, cached version anywhere on the Internet?
Let's ask the wayback machine. Ah, by pure chance the internet archive happened to download the script, last version is from 2014 though. (We can get the unmodified file by appending "id_" to the version number.)

Any magic we might miss?
Yip, after some experimenting it's clear the server expects to see a version in the "v" parameter, and the target for the posted form should point to the popup window of course. Not difficult to guess the expected version: 5, and let's set the target to a fixed window name.

Where can we put it?
Let's just upload the script into soup, as a "file".

How can we use it in the bookmarklet?
Well, decode and tidy up the original bookmarklet, set the popup window name to the same fixed value we used in the script, change the bookmarklet's script url to the asset url of the uploaded file, recompress and reencode the result.

Here's the temporary workaround, though I can't format it as a link in soup :(. Just copy&paste this into the URL field of a bookmark:

Trying to solve a trivial bug

Dedicated to Ian Murdock

Ian Murdock, the founder of the Debian project, passed away on 28th December
2015 at his home in San Francisco. He was 42.

It is difficult to exaggerate Ian's contribution to Free Software. He led the
Debian Project from its inception in 1993 to 1996, wrote the Debian manifesto
in January 1994 and nurtured the fledgling project throughout his studies at
Purdue University.

Ian went on to be founding director of Linux International, CTO of the Free
Standards Group and later the Linux Foundation, and leader of Project Indiana
at Sun Microsystems, which he described as "taking the lesson that Linux has
brought to the operating system and providing that for Solaris".

Debian's success is testament to Ian's vision. He inspired countless people
around the world to contribute their own free time and skills. More than 350
distributions are known to be derived from Debian.

We therefore dedicate Debian 9 "stretch" to Ian.
