Gerrit is the master, but every change to Gerrit is mirrored to Gitorious 
quite quickly. So we prefer to indicate the Gitorious URL as the official for 

GitHub is not official. I don't know how far behind it is on mirroring.

qt.git contains Qt 4 and, as such, all the Qt modules in one repository.

qt5.git contains just the submodule links. If you clone with --recurse, it 
will automatically clone the submodules too.
