In order to have the best possible tooling experience in Qt for Android, 
we really need a new minor release of Qt Creator to go along with Qt 
5.2, because otherwise we won't be able to add features, strings, UI, 
etc. there.

Therefore I'll propose adding a dependency for the Qt 5.2 release that 
it should not be released before after Qt Creator 3.0 is out, so that 
the binary packages we make for Qt 5.2 can bundle Qt Creator 3.0.

Qt Creator 3.0 is scheduled for the end of November, and historically 
Creator has had very few and very short delays, so I don't think this 
adds any significant risk to Qt 5.2 release.

Note that the only milestone which needs to be moved for this is the 
final release. Alpha, beta, etc. can still have the same target dates, 
so that we don't actually lose any of the slack planned for Qt 5.2.
