Funny thing is all code they have engineered for that fork is still legally breaching GPL, since the contributions were already made under that license

"This license is exactly like the MIT License, with one exception – Any distribution of this source code or any modification thereof in source code format, must be done under the Enhanced MIT license and not under any other licenses, such as GPL."

— Viral means original permissions must be preserved in derivatives

— This was the infringing component originally
