Subject: Artistic license

Would you consider re-licensing Tie-EncryptedHash under either the same terms as perl (GPL or Artistic), or under the terms of the Artistic license v2.0? I'm currently maintaining a package of Tie-EncryptedHash for Fedora, for which the original Artistic license is problematic (see also http://www.fsf.org/licensing/licenses/index_html#ArtisticLicense). More discussion on this here: http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-packaging/2007-August/msg00016.html
Licensed under Artistic 2.0 | GPL in 1.22.

The situation in 1.23 isn't that clear: The CHANGES file says "Artistic 2.0 | GPL" The README file says "Artistic" The module itself says "same as perl", which would be "Artistic (original) or GPL (any version)" The "same as perl" license is fine for Fedora by the way, as we can just use the GPL half of the dual license so it doesn't matter that the other license is the problematic old Artistic license.

Thanks for the 1.24 update; I'm happy now :-)
Excellent.
