Debian and its clones "I invite everyone interested to join the Utnubu Team. Utnubu stands for doing what Ubuntu does, just the other way around: We want to take the things Ubuntu does and that are missing in Debian, and - where appliciable - put them in Debian."

LSB argues that if we allow dual-licensed libraries, we might end up with chains of libraries that tax proprietary developers for a totalt sum that will be unpleasantly expensive. To prevent this, I suggest that the license-rule is adjusted to simply require an alternative closed-source-friendly library (eg. GTK) to be installed alongside the dual-licensed one.

(I think you understand, but people might misread this)

If something is not in LSB, that doesn't mean it shouldn't be included in LSB-compliant distro's.

It just means a distro is not required to provide libQt in order to be able to call itself LSB-compliant.
