"If you have already started the development with an open-source version 
of Qt and wish to move to a commercial license you need to have a 
written explicit permission from The Qt Company to facilitate this 
change. The Qt Company reserves the right to grant the permission at its 
own discretion." ( see https://www.qt.io/faq 3.13 ).

Of course this information is useless for someone who wants to change 
the license - the decision for the LGPL had been made long before. It is 
about sending the message that you should not do LGPL, if you don't want 
to be banned later.

And you don't care ?
