That's because according to the Qt Project governance model, if the
mailing list has never been informed
that the Qt Project was applying, then the Qt project was not applying.
So it looks to me that the Qt Company applied for the Qt Project.
Or am I missing something?

Anyway that's a great idea, and I like the idea of an IncludeOS port of Qt.

Is there some decisions already made about the licensing of the contributions?
Like, are contributions going to be released under GPL/LGPL/Commercial
license like most of Qt,
or are they going to be GPL/Commercial only?
