Besides, your upstream version is licensed as LGPL. Only you as the author can release it under a different license. By publishing the package to the Etoys inbox you assert that you have the full rights to dual-license it as MIT.
Of course, that also means that you cannot relicense patches that someone else contributes to your code under the LGPL (unless that contributor would also release them under MIT for Etoys).

>>> What you should do is merge the version 12 from the etoys repo into your latest version. Then publish that as a new version to your own repository, and *copy* it to the etoys repository (do not save it again).
