Hi everybody,

as one of the first consequences of the situation in Brisbane, I'd like to do some changes to our list of essential modules. You can see the current list at http://qt-project.org/wiki/Qt-Essentials-Modules . 

I intend to move both Qt 3D and Qt Location out of the essentials list and make them add-ons for now. They are fully usable as-is today, but with the situation down-under I am currently unsure how well we can maintain and develop them going forward. If things turn out well, we can still move them into the Essentials list in a 5.1 or 5.x release.

In addition, I will also remove Qt JS Backend from the list of essentials. While the library is a requirement for the QtQml module, it doesn't provide any public API and as such is a pure implementation detail on which I currently don't want to give any long term guarantees.
