Er, no.  Darren's summary is inaccurate.  I merely asked for someone
to check if the licensing on the uploaded KDE packages was correct,
because I didn't have time to do that.  I never said anything about
"third party" code, I meant the entire license issue.

The few files I did check were LGPL, which is compatible with the Qt
license as far as I've heard.
