PySide  has now finished migration from its previous standalone setup
to Qt Project  infrastructure.
Being a Qt Add-on provides PySide a permanent home and perfect alignment
with Qt Frameworks. Furthermore, the project gets improved visibility,
as well as a simple, carefully thought out meritocratic project
structure. In addition to the wiki that is already hosted by Qt, the
PySide mailing list  and the bug tracker  are also now hosted by
Qt. More information on the Qt Project can be found on the project web
The PySide project now follows Qt Project's governance model . The
Maintainer for API Extractor, Generatorrunner, and Shiboken is Marcelo
Lira. The Maintainer for the PySide component is Hugo Parente Lima.
Paulo Alcantara is an Approver for PySide. All other project roles are
informal. Srini Kommoori has kindly volunteered to be the webmaster and
wikimaster for the project.
To developers using PySide the migration is mostly transparent. PySide
is still available under the same licensing terms, and the project
facilities are still the mostly unchanged. Instead of having a separate
Bugzilla instance, the PySide project now utilizes Qt's Jira bug tracker
. Also the mailing list address has changed to pyside at qt-project.org
Qt Project uses Gerrit  for code reviews. Developers contributing
code to PySide should do it using Gerrit from now on. Read-only access
to the git source code repositories is still provided via Gitorious .
PySide is a Python Qt bindings project initiated by Nokia. PySide
provides access to not only the complete Qt framework but also Qt
Mobility, as well as to generator tools for rapidly generating Python
bindings for any
The PySide project is a Qt Add-on, sharing the same infrastructure and
governance model as the open Qt Project itself. PySide is developed in
the open, with all facilities you would expect from any modern open
source project such as all code in a git repository , and an open bug
tracker  for reporting bugs.
