Thank you, point out the problem.

They forked a new version from 0.9.2 , and the library in Debian is 0.9.3 .
I think the problem that could be solved between versions.

Because the authors in deadbeef want to release with GPL and LGPL Version 2,
I'm seriously concerned about this joke.
What kind license could they use in '0.9.3'? is BSD ok? or GPL?
