Yes, this is correct: to maintain the current code licensing scheme we'd 
need to make sure anyone who contributes code to Github had clicked 
through the license agreement on Gerrit.  I like to switch to Github 
even if we do this.  I could also see opening thing up a bit more with 
PySide so that simple fixes could be accepted from the bug tracker (yes, 
I realize that there's no clear definition of "simple").

While I appreciate the help that the Qt project has given us, I don't 
see it as a requirement that PySide remain under the Qt project umbrella.
