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

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.

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

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

yes ... not widely used yet...

What I dislike about the fedora approach is that a random script gets executed
on the developer workstation. That means you have to review this script each
time before running it if it does come from some random submission.

I doubt everybody will do that, so you would even need to review the factory
scripts each time :/

A better approach would be to have some generic tool which would parse some
config file and removes for example the questioning files. Maybe with support
of reg-exp's. But not with the possibility to inject code.

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.
