We recently had a discussion in the Qt Company about how we can improve the
first use experience of Qt and one important aspect are the examples and demos.
We have a lot of examples that are limited by the Qt module they live in, for
example not making use of ready made buttons in Qt Quick. To allow examples to
use any Qt module while keeping the build system clean (no cyclic dependencies
between modules), I'd like to propose using the qtdoc module to gather fresh
and beautiful examples.
We currently have a few bigger examples already that would fit this category
and plan to invest more into good looking nice and welcoming examples to give
new Qt users a positive first impression.
Of course we could create a new repo, but considering that we have an existing
repo which did contain the demo launcher previously and which is ready to be
used, I'd propse going with it, while the name is not perfect. It's already
part of the infrastructure and qt5.git, so this seems like an easy way to go
