You're right. I was trying to say that the EPL is not "any more" the final 
license.  

In my project GPL is impossible to use, since I'm using source code which is 
under the BSD 4 clause license (libraries in ecos-tree). This code is not 
allowed to be mixed with GPL. I did not check if the mentioned Demo code is 
using standard libraries under old-BSD licenses.

Where do I find the project policy?
