I understand the lines are blurred between Qt Project and Qt Company with the 
qt.io domain. Let's unblur them:

The Git repositories and this mailing list are Qt Project. Everything there is 
Open Source. Please don't add a binary tool that isn't Open Source, even if it 
is freely redistributable.

I understand, but I'm asking you not to.
