[opensuse-packaging] How to proceed when upstream bundles prohibited sofware

Hi,

As the subject says how do we proceed when there is problematic bundled
library code in the upstream. darktable package has bundled squish
library in the sources, and after discussing with the legal team it is
best we follow the same route as fedora.

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=972604

In fedora guidelines the solution outlined can be found in the
following link:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:SourceURL#When_Upstream_uses_Prohibited_Code

Since there is no suggestion in our guidelines, how do I proceed in this
case, as implementing the removal of offending code is not the issue but
AFAIK our buildservice has some checks for the source code from the Source URL

Also does this removal of the code should be applied in the home project
also, as I am providing nightly git builds as well in addition to the
official package.
