I have no clue about the forums. I will not post there or monitor there 
because I dislike the medium.

However, I can tell you that the interest at qt-project.org mailing list is 
monitored by a lot of developers. You can have discussions about the use of Qt 
there. It's not required to have a Git checkout.

On this mailing list (development@), since we're talking about developing Qt, 
if you're here you're mostly expected to be contributing to Qt or to be 
willing to, which in turn translates to having a checkout.

I agree. The interest@ mailing list would have been enough. My point is that 
if you posted here, you're assumed to be a developer or willing to become one.
