That is correct as of:
And it’s also correct that as long as the QtShaderTools is only used as a build tool (as done with qtmultimedia), the fact that it’s not LGPL’ed doesn’t matter.
That we have LGPL’ed the module now with Qt 6.3 opens up possibilities to use some of that code at runtime. But note that as of now, there are no public APIs in the Qt ShaderTools module.
