Dear Qt developers,

We have removed Qt Telemetry repository from the Qt Project playground due to a possible copyright violation.

Based on analysis of the code, we have a reason to believe some of the contributed code is in violation of the Qt Project CLA.

According to the Qt Project CLA all contributions must be original work of the person making the contribution. Copying code that is written by someone else, removing the original copyright notices, and contributing the code as one’s own work is completely unacceptable.

While not all of the code in the Qt Telemetry repository are violating other’s copyrights, we have now removed the whole repository from the Qt Project playground.

If someone has cloned the Qt Telemetry repository, please delete it immediately and do not use it.
