Audrey, any idea? Can you give permission to relicense Parse-Binary under a consistent licence?

From: Audrey Tang <audreyt@audreyt.org>
The package includes both files: Artistic and COPYING, exactly the same way as Perl itself:

           perlartistic        Perl Artistic License
           perlgpl             GNU General Public License

The user can freely choose between one of the two.

Cheers,
Audrey

Hi,

Please be informed about the following licensing issue:

* Inconsistency between the licence declared in file COPYING (GPL-2) and
the licence declared in file lib/Parse/Binary.pm (Artistic)

Please consider resolving this inconsistency.


Audrey, any idea? Can you give permission to relicense Parse-Binary under a
consistent licence?

Best regards,

Cyrille
