Notes are at http://qt-project.org/groups/qt-contributors-summit-2013/wiki/QtCore_CS_2013

This is a summary of the important topics. For more info, please refer to the 

- QFileSelector: I asked Alan to finish discussing it during Akademy with the 
KDE / Plasma folks, then submit for 5.2. I will review for syntactic 
correctness, but the API will be up to Alan.

- kernel: need to finish converting QMetaType from the "static" API to the 
"staticless" API, to remove code duplication due to template bloat.

- kernel: would be nice to research what we'd need from the C++ language to 
make this work better, and submit to the standards committee.

- kernel: generalise the connection API. Main use-case: QTimer::singleShot.

- exception-safety: we discussed a bit and we ended up concluding that:

	=> we will roll back exception safety support in all of Qt <=

  that is, we will stop promising any level of exception safety, even in the 
  tools classes.

- calendaring, timezone, unicode and ICU: please see John's post.

- threading: we need to improve the API. We have some contributions from Jabot 
pending. We discussed that we need to document what our currently-recommended 
solutions are, so we find out what we're bad at, and then design an API to 
solve those needs.
