Hi Oskar,

source code tarball to reflect this.

Ok, I'll change your license when we approve your project.

Please, if you can contact the authors and ask them for a new version
of Multiplex with a new version of the license. I don't think that
this process will be fast, so can you keep that dependency out of your
project for now? until you get an answer from the authors.

Maybe it will be a good idea to create new code for your
project that may replace the use of that library and license it under
GPLv3. That's a good option too.

I'm sorry, that was my mistake.

I've reviewed your source code and everything is fine to me, so we
just have to resolve the problem with the Perl lib.
