Hi Benjamin,

Good catch! The license of the modules hasn’t changed in 6.1, so this is probably a copy/paste bug in the package metadata creation.

You can track https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-93630 to follow up.

In the online installer when installing these 3 modules, the following text is shown in the description and tooltip:
This component is available under commercial licenses from The Qt Company, or under GPL v3. For open source use, please note the additional requirements compared to LGPL v3.

Implying that they are non longer licensed under LGPLv3.
However, according to the documentation they are still available under LGPLv3.

Same thing for the Qt 5 compatibility module, it shows the same text in the online installer.
But is licensed under GPLv2 and LGPLv3 according to the documentation.

I have not found a bug report about this.
Is the documentation correct, or is the online installer correct?
