[Freewx-maint] Bug#724470: wxwidgets2.8: Includes base64-encoded exe file without source code

Source: wxwidgets2.8
Severity: serious
Justification: contains binary without corresponding source code

wxwidgets2.8 contains an embedded copy of editra (only in the source
package - we deliberately don't package this as there's a separate
package for editra), and editra contains a python script with a base64
encoded .exe file - there's no source code supplied for this .exe file
anywhere I can find in the package:


I've already reported bug #724465 against editra for this issue in
the editra package, but wxwidgets2.8's orig source tarball will need
another repack.  I'm working on this already - just filing this bug as
a public note of the issue.
