Right now i have no problem with giving non-exclusively license to
openwall / Solar (is there a difference?) .

I'll keep releasing my code under GPLv2; for nt-opencl and
raw-md5-opencl i'm updating code it's not clear: nt is bsd from alain
espinosa
and raw-md5 has no license at all and was done from dhiru kholia.

Do i need permission from their authors? do i need to release my
contribution under bsd for nt  ?
I'm a bit confused
