    it's to do with

    In the CALD, it says:

    to do with
    ​connected with

    "Why did you want to talk to me?"
    "Well, it's to do with a complaint that's been made about your work."
    ------------------

    Do it refer to 'it is to do with...' or 'it has to do with...'?
    Or are both acceptable?
