I thought I'd unravel the mystery man a bit.

My Qt history is quite fresh. I started off in late '09 in Brisbane office.
Back then the active focus was on qtmobility project. As a first task
I started working in the bearer management.
Once the biggest fires were off I scratched the initial Service Framework
backend for Symbian. Then there was some shuffle and I hopped on board
in location - mapping, satellites - all the fun stuff.
Perhaps the biggest tasks in there were writing the location QML, and
also the jump from Qt4 -> Qt5 which imposed a
lot of changes to location (as it is after all a graphical lib). Maybe
there was a meego positioning backend too.
Anyhow late last year I gradually stepped down from QtLocation
(now a Qt5 module) as I switched the hemisphere with my family. Ever
since I've been still working with Qt as my main framework.

xmlpatterns, w00t?

XML and friends is a personal interest of mine.
My main traits for the task would be the personal interest, at least
few years of (full time) experience with Qt, and
highly quality-driven personality that simply loves to code (with Qt).

That's about it. I haven't done coding work for the xmlpatterns module internals,
and I'm very well aware its less ideal thing. But.

Subject: New maintainer for QtSql and QtXmlPatterns

Hi everybody,

Honglei has so far been the maintainer for QtSql and QtXmlPatterns. He is
now leaving Nokia to start some studies and has told me that he can't
continue to maintain the modules.

I've been looking around for two new maintainers for these modules and
found two people that I'd like to propose them here. Mark Brand for QtSql
and Juha Vuolle for QtXmlPatterns.

Mark has been doing many active contributions to QtSql over the last half
a year. Juha might now have been as visible in the community (he's mainly
been doing some contributions to qtlocation) but I know him for a very
good and talented developer that can easily take over the module.

I'd like to thank Honglei for the work he has done on the modules, and
Mark and Juha for stepping up and volunteering to take over the
