[Development] HEADS UP: Qt 5.2.0 RC1 - merge stable into release

All merges are now done, so all changes required for Qt 5.2.0 need
to be pushed to the 'release' branch from now on.

qtandroidextras, qtconnectivity, qtlocation, qtmacextras and qtwinextras didn't have a
release branch, so in that case it was created out of the current stable

Only changes fixing P0 or P1 (and really important P2) can be pushed

directly to the release branch.

Changes in the release branch need to be reviewed as usual, but only the
release team <https://codereview.qt-project.org/#admin,group,61> can
stage them.

Last time staging once a day -every morning- worked quite well, so I'd
propose the same now.

Changes in the current 'stable' branch will be part of a future Qt release.

Just a reminder: stable->release merge is ongoing. Still waiting for last staged changed to be integrated, and after that we can proceed with the merge.

We are about to start "Qt 5.2.0 RC1" release, which means that:

- We plan to do a fast-forward merge from 'stable' into 'release' branch
on Nov 11th. So no CI involved here [1].

- After Nov 11th any changes that are required for 5.2.0 need to be
pushed to the 'release' branch. So if your changes are not in by that
day, please wait after the merge is done and re-target it to the
'release' branch.
NOTE: Only release critical fixes (P0,P1 and really important P2) are
allowed to be integrated to the release branch.
See http://qt-project.org/wiki/Qt5Releasing: Branches & Qt versions

- Please note that string freeze will happen together with the merge. So
if you have changes to the localized content, please stage them to
'stable' branch immediately. [2]

The repositories that will be part of the Qt 5.2.0 RC1 release merge are:

- qt5
- qtactiveqt
- qtandroidextras
- qtbase
- qtconnectivity
- qtdeclarative
- qtdoc
- qtgraphicaleffects
- qtimageformats
- qtlocation
- qtmacextras
- qtmultimedia
- qtquick1
- qtquickcontrols
- qtscript
- qtsensors
- qtserialport
