I haven't get any critical comment regarding
this being a bad idea, so I would like to take your +1s
and continue with the next steps.

I would like to request a new repository:

Name: Qt Project Web
Description: Repository for the qt-project.org website
Responsible persons: Cristián Maureira-Fredes
Repository name: qt/qtproject-web

Once I can push the code there,
we could solve the deployment and usage of https://qt-project.org

some of you have been highlighting many improvements and
issues with the page, so in case you have more ideas or
found more issues, let's use the QTWEBSITE project on JIRA:


Specially the component called "qt-project.org"


In the meantime, I will try to fix some of the issues
you raised, and write down the others on JIRA, so we don't forget.

Thanks for your comments :)
