We have started a community device seeding activity to encourage brave 
developers porting their mobile apps to Qt 5


Many candidates are showing their Qt 4 mobile projects, that happen to 
rely in (Harmattan) Qt Quick Components. They may or may not be aware 
that, as for today, those components are not available for Qt 5. I have 
asked around (Donald, Johannes, Girish, Rajiv) and their first 
impression is that porting those components shouldn't be rocket science 
although there might be problems with polished look & feel (something we 
can probably bare with for this device seeding activity, experimental in 

Question: do you believe there is a value in promoting an effort to port 
those components here and now? Anybody else thinking or working along 
these lines?

We can always have the option to go only for games and other apps alike 
with no or own custom components.
