Yes. We did, we should have announced it beforehand. Please believe me that 
there was no bad intention, quite the opposite.
The Qt Company will support projects and mentor some, we'd love to have the 
community involved, as usual, just drop me a line and I'll add you to the list 
of mentors. I hope we end up doing a good job and will continue this next year 
in a more coordinated fashion :)

As Thiago says, the work needs to follow all the usual procedures of 
contributing to Qt.
