Tomasz asked the question on how to proceed on the Tizen dev mailing list.

Basically, the idea is that the porting work should happen on qt-project.org, 
to be close to upstream (us). Every now and then, he'll pull from qt-
project.org into tizen.org. Eventually, once things are stabilised, that 
should happen only after Qt releases.

Bug fixes might be developed on tizen.org, but they should be upstreamed to qt-
project.org at the earliest opportunity, in the proper form (not as a hotfix).

That's more or less how Blackberry and Jolla are doing right now.
