TQtC needs to establish some more pro-active monitoring of the infrastructure so that these things will get ideally get fixed before they become a problem next time. I’ll see what I can do to help getting that in place.

Hi Lars,

You've just dropped Qbs, what's next?
I don't trust you anymore, nor the company-ies you represent - Nothing personal.
I think that it is time for the qt-project.org domain to be handed
back to the Qt Project community.
I was reading a french article this morning
(https://linuxfr.org/news/fedora-29), i give you an inaccurate, but
syntactic and compact translation of the article introduction:

Fedora is a GNU/Linux distribution developed by the Fedora Project and
sponsored by Red Hat that provide them with developers, finance and
Fedora can be seen as an open source technological show case of Red
Hat proprietary technology. (NDLR: Free and inaccurate translation, i
mean it)
=> sold for 34 billions dollars

How do you fell about that? Do you see similarities?

Is the triple-licensed Qt stack an open source technological show case
of what the Qt Company has to offer?

More seriously, yes, Fedora/RedHat  and
Qt/Project/Company/Digia/Nokia/Microsoft/TrollTech are different beast
(apple and oranges, yadi, yada, ...).
But I see similarities. (and i do not care about the 34 billions)
