    Qt has gone more open with the Open Governance project qt-project.org – you should really update to reflect that.

    You are mixing projects and commercial derivatives in Android case. The use of the correct name "Android open source project" or "AOSP" is allowed directly in the licenses used. The use of the trademarked "Android" is allowed after voluntary verification with an (open source) verification toolkit.
    More importantly, claiming that AOSP is less open because Google makes the Android Market available only after a commercial agreement is totally unrelated from the openness of AOSP itself – the Market is a proprietary application tiered to proprietary services. I suspect that claiming that Oracle makes its DB available only after a commercial agreement would be perceived as unrelated from the openness of the Oracle linux source code…
    My perception is that in this graphic and in the report you have mixed aspects of commercial and open projects in the Android case, and this makes it less robust. I perfectly agree that there are other reasons for the reduced openness of AOSP-mainly the fact that Google internal development is not bridged externally-but the reasons listed here are not appropriate.
