Thanks Lars, can we aim for March 20 (Tuesday) as a working release
date? You can check with maintainers and I can check with marketing dudes.

Ok, I have started with http://wiki.qt-project.org/Qt_5 . I haven't been
involved in any Qt release previously - bare with me and help improving
(I wasn't sure about what wiki to use, if you prefer
http://qt-project.org/wiki/ we can use that).
Beef we need from the maintainers:
- What modules are involved in the release. Essentials and which add-ons
- What are the highlights of each module.
- What extra materials are availale: docs, code examples, screenshots,
- What areas in their module welcome more attention from testers,
Then we need to agree on the Qt 5 highlights. And how we promote them
best in this Alpha release.
All corners of the Qt Project are encouraged to find and contribute some
spice to the release day. Can the MediaHub showcase some gerat visual
features in an integrated way? Is someone making the most of the new QPA
with some port? Is there some HTML5 beauty to show thanks to the new
QtWebKit2? Any simple QtQuick 3D code generating amazing results?
Anything running on a Raspberry Pi?
You see where I'm coming from. If you are working on something cool and
you can achieve an alignment with the Alpha release let us know here
sooner than later.
