We'd avoid this problem if we put it into a repository that doesn't follow the Qt branching model. If things change for specific Qt versions, that should be noted explicitly in the documentation.

So far following locations have been proposed:


I dislike qtbase.git, just because getting stuff in there is so much work. Lars suggested qtdoc.git because much of the general documentation is there, but it follows the branching model. So I'm personally leaning to either qtqa.git or qt5.git directly.
