[Development] Harmonizing the Qt 5.x Documentation

Hello Vladiimir,

The directories were just copied to the server and it will take some time to be fully indexed. I submitted the directories to Google's Webmaster Tools and I can also submit a sitemap of the directories. (Qt Project already has sitemaps).

But like I said earlier, we are not deploying the changes this week but around Qt 5.3 final (I am aiming for post-Beta/RC time). The redirects in doc.qt.digia.com still need to be set up as well.

Just to give a brief user feedback. Not sure the above really helps, at
least not right now. Google does not like any of those links. A search
query "site:doc.qt.digia.com/qt-5.1/ QString" returns an empty page, where
is it works as expected with "site:qt-project.org/doc/qt-5.1 QString".
Generally, the best search result for "QString" on Google is from Qt 4.7
and "Qt Platform Abstraction" comes only from
qt-project.org/doc/qt-5.0/qtdoc/qpa.html‎ as if QPA was dismissed from 5.1

Using Google for a detailed search is for now, IMHO, the most efficient
approach since it is more powerful than the search in docs in Qt Creator,
plus a direct navigation through pages does not get you to all articles
since some of them do not get linked well for some reasons. The mentioned
Chrome plugin is interesting in that context.

I hope the harmonization steps will make this better. Thanks!
