I maintain a PyQt5 project on GitHub under the MIT license but now I am wondering if I am risking getting in trouble by not making it GPL... This answer makes me think that releasing my own code under MIT should be allowed because I have PyQt5 as a pip or conda dependency and my project does not directly include or modify and GPL code it just has it as a dependency, but the 2 other answers in that thread make me unsure. All I have is a single LICENSE.txt in my project root saying it's MIT. Can anyone help clarify whether I am breaking GPL rules here? Another big PyQt based project released under MIT is pyqtgraph.
