Hmm. I guess in general there needs to be some work done on promoting 
and documenting things that are no longer shipped with Qt, since using 
them now probably means downloading source code and building it. I'm 
sure if there was a full-time maintainer for service framework this 
would get fixed :)

Service framework lives in the qtsystems repo.

Clone that to a machine with Qt 5 on it and then, assuming you only want 
service framework, build with something like this:
qmake -r qtsystems.pro CONFIG+=without-publishsubscribe 

Depending on how your Qt was built, you probably need to 'make install' 
this before you can use it elsewhere. I'm not sure how that works with 
binary builds of Qt 5 though.

You need QT += serviceframework in your .pro. Headers should be the same 
as what was in Mobility.

If you want to run unit tests or see the examples, you can manually 
build in those directories or add these to your qmake arguments:
