Ok, i see...So i can use Qt OS edition and earn money from this as
long as i explicitly say (is a reference to a GPL in a readme text
file enough for this ?) that this software is under the GPL lisence
and i have the obligation to give the source code with it.
I will reply to that email of Trolltec's today and i will tell them
about the things mentioned here, basically just the sentence i wrote
above.
I see what they will reply and post it here...
