Actually, the text reads:

        JpGraph is released under a dual license. QPL 1.0 (Qt Free
        Licensee) For non-commercial, open-source or educational use and
        JpGraph Professional License for commercial use.

So QPL applies for (non-commercial || open-source || educational) use.
I'd say Fedora fits in the "open-source" category.

But yeah, the text is far from clear. Perhaps its better to ask the
authors for clarification. It'd be a pity if a useful package like that
is pulled because of a misunderstanding...
