Hi Vladimir,

It's great to hear that you've been looking into integrating Alexa and other 
assistants as well, we have a few thoughts around this in The Qt Company and 
have been drawing how a rough abstraction for several assistants could look 
like. Sadly it's not easy to hook deeply into e.g. Alexa, but what you've done 
sounds very interesting. A later extension could also be to use QtMultiMedia 
with the Alexa SDK.

Moving/renaming repositories is generally a not very fun exercise, so we've 
been aiming to just use the final name, independent of the state.
I'd suggest "qt/qtvoiceassistant", does that sound OK?
