Just a few random commits I see:

The message log claims that deleting "NULL" will crash an app. This is
not true, as in C++ you can safely delete a null pointer.

int main()
        int *i = 0;
        delete i;
        return 0;

The bug they fix is still there.

OOPS. This a very good fix. Lets hope we don't have it in Qt5.

In this bug they modify the embedded sqlite3. This is bad.
I am not sure why they do this change:
- qWarning( QString( "QODBCDriver::open: Unknown option value '%1'"
).arg( *it ) );
+ qWarning( "QODBCDriver::open: Unknown option value '%s'", (*it).latin1() );

Be warned:
+Qt 3.5 is a new feature release. It is not backwards compatible with any
+prior Qt3 version due to changes in the QStyle API.

sed -i 's/kwin/twin/g'? This commit seems very ... ... ... . ?

This is what I see from very limited view. Note, I have no idea what I
am talking about, and I might be wrong. Its very easy to criticize
someone when you are an outsider. but...

It seems that this works for them as an OSS, but for a proprietary
app.. be careful, you cannot iterate that often and you have only one
