Hi Thorsten,

Sorry for the direct contact. I just wanted to let you know that the 
Copyright issue was solved upstream and we uploaded again the package 
one week ago [1].

It is sitting in the NEW queue and I would very much appreciate if you 
have some time to look at it

Thank you!

Best regards,

Lluís Campos
