Dear Christian,

I have misunderstood Throsten's remark previously, I thought the only
problem was missing clarity in debian/copyright. That's not the case,
hence, I released a new upstream version 1.16. In this the external GPLv2
code is removed completely, and I have relicensed my work in src/SerialUsb.cpp
under GPLv3+

This is all folded that into the debian downstream too. git-pbuilder passes
under debian/unstable. Could you please take a look at it and upload if

Thank you for your help!
