This software is a fork on the modification I did on baker made by taylorchu. The original version has been released under GPL2. So, Blash is also under GPLv2. But, all subsequent modifications, I did, have been published under the dual license DSSL & WTFPL. All the future modifications will be released under the dual license DSSL & WTPFL and the original work in GPLv2.

Please consults Blash Licenses.
