Then you need to read your Qt license more closely. Gerard would then become a 
developer as far as Trolltech (and I) were concerned and would need a 
commercial Qt license (and a commercial PyQt license of course).

When I've been in this situation in the past, it's been done with me being 
given a remote login to the "donor's" development system, and I've asked for 
confirmation in writing that the "donor" has the necessary Qt commercial 
license in place.
