My apologies. I spotted the same file in another package of this series,
and removed it, but I clearly missed that one.

I agree with Russ that it's a little bit annoying to have such a data
file aimed for test that contains this type of copyrighted material, but
we shouldn't care much. I didn't care removing the tests, just that
file, and if someone that runs the test complains, there's always
upstream source code to get the file.

I've just reuploaded version 1.0.4+dfsg1-1.

After this package gets in, we now should be good-to-go for packaging
puppet version 6 (which de-embedded these files).
