"Qt 4.5 upwards is licensed under the LGPL license; also, commercial licenses are available from Nokia."

Since new version of Qt 5 is realsed and Licenced under Digia.

So i am fixing this issue .

i am going to write it as 

PyQt5 is licensed on all platforms under a commercial license and the GPL v3. Your PyQt5 license must be compatible with your Qt license.
If you use the GPL version then your own code must also use a compatible license.

Note:-PyQt5, unlike Qt, is not available under the LGPL.

You can purchase a commercial PyQt5 license here.

It seems to me (having checked) that the current language is correct.  The fact that PyQt5 is available under the GPL isn't really relevant to the FAQ as it currently exists (it doesn't mention the GPL anywhere else).  Keep in mind that Python's license is non-GPL.  Adding GPL-licensed product information would be a whole different level of change, I think.

Also, the GPLs allows commercial usage, so using “LGPL” and “commercial” to mean two different licensing cases is not quite right.

It looks as if there's nothing to be done here, is that correct?
