It seems that you're referring to
but I don't see any comments about Qt licensing there.

What? If there ever was a "anti-Qt movement", Debian has certainly not
been a "prime mover" behind it. Debian has simply refrained from
distributing some programs which had code covered by the GPL yet
linked to Qt at a time where distributing such programs would have
been illegal. That's not being "anti-Qt" in any way, it's just abiding
to the license terms of the involved code.
