Dear Qt upstream maintainers,

I am currently packaging some Qt5 modules for Debian in the context of  
packaging Lomiri (formerly named Unity8) for Debian.

I have come across dependencies in the Lomiri software stack that are  
available on Qt's Git server, but have not seen any recent releases,  
yet, and seem to be somewhat in maintenance mode:

    * qtsystems
    * qtfeedback
    * qtpim

I am about to upload the first (qtsystems) to Debian and before doing  
that, I'd like to know, if these projects can be considered API/ABI  
stable or heavy changes are to be expected on these projects.

On the other hand, would it be possible to get release tags for the  
above named repositories?

Furthermore, do these projects need (more) upstream maintainers? If  
so, I'll be happy to poke people from UBports.com and bring up the  
issue there.
