Is the aim to merge this printing dialog into Qt sources to replace the 
current Qt print dialog? http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qprintdialog.html

If yes, then the GSoC students should contact Qt developers at the Qt 
development mailing list, and discuss their plans. Unfortunately, the 
former QPrinter maintainer is busy with his paid job, so I see 
difficulties here.

If not, then I suggest that the GSoC students just post questions to the 
Qt interest mailing list, #qt IRC channel, or official Qt forum at 

Please do not use any other Qt mailing list.
