Does this means that we drop support for OS X 10.6 in Qt 5.2 ?

Since we are adding a new Linux platform .. why not to add something
else than Ubuntu ?

I know that the puppet configuration might be an issue, so I wonder if
there are other blockers for, let's say, Debian, SuSE, Fedora or others ?

Interesting, I still don't understand the difference between the two.
