[ros-users] Please vote for a bug to enable "rqt" to run with more open license

The new GUI infrastructure for ROS "rqt" can use either PySide (LGPL) or PyQt (GPL).
Sadly the recent PySide releases are all broken for our use case due to a regression in PySide (since version 1.1.0).

We have filled an issue with a simple-to-apply workaround in June: https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/PYSIDE-76
Yet it has not been included in the recent patch released.

Therefore I would like to ask you to vote for the issue to encourage the developers to fix this bug sooner than later.
