I still think there is a bit too much hassle to get in the copyright changes (they touch about every file) but take out a rather large number of changes that are done after 4.8.3 but before the copyright changes.

For that reason we have prepared a similar copyright changes source file manually based on 4.8.3. It is now in testing and we would be soon ready to release it.

As said, the reason to do this are the fact that we have to do the copyright change, but wish to minimize the work and concentrate on Qt 5.0. Later when we do the 'real' 4.8.4 the copyrights are right as they are changes in the repo.

So my preference is still to pick one of the options #1 - #3.
