The main licence is GPL with Qt additional permission.

The additional licences are:
- Tigris/CollabNet licence (ad-clause licence, similar to Apache-1?)
- "This manual page was written by Andreas Fester, <Andreas.Fester@gmx.de>,
   for the Debian Project and might be used freely by others."
  I think you should replace might with may there.

I think the Tigris licence is incompatible with the GPL and there's a
.h file under the Tigris licence.  I expect that .h file is compiled
in somehow.  That could be a problem.
