It does the same here. This however did not prevent me from using
tsung in production without facing any issue. I will get in touch with
upstream to get more information about these testing errors.

You are right. I will get rid of this dependency. :)

I seems like you and Benoit are right: the two licenses don't seem to
be compatible [1]. I will report this issue upstream and check if the
package would still be usable when removing the 3 files you mentioned
that are distributed the terms of EPL.

Thanks a lot for taking a look at my package, and sorry for the delay
