I think that everybody knows, that Friedemann has been doing a great job maintaining the Windows platform specifics in Qt's code base. He wants to focus on Qt for Python now so we have been looking for an alternative way of maintenance.

He is responsible for our accessibility backend on Windows and rewrote mouse/touch/pen handling for that platform. He also wrote the "win32" bluetooth backend and fixed bugs in various areas of Qt.
