Yes, the idea id to open the door to this possibility:
1. A big Qt user investing in Qt and perhaps considering becoming a
contributor sponsors Qt CS.
2. One of the incentives in the sponsorship was 1-2 invitations to
attend Qt CS, have a chance to meet the project contributors and have a
first hand experience.
Defining the sponsorship offers is in my ToDo list...

In other words, let's put the stress inviting non-Nokia +
"no-former-trolls" developers. Canonical, RIM and many
http://qt.nokia.com/partners/ . A big chunk of the (short term) future
approvers should come from this front, critical for the sustainability
and health of the Qt Project.

Share the draft before, please. Ok, Alex is away these days. Anybody
else knowing how registration was handled last year?
