#qt-android has been the hideout during the spam attack.

I was not aware of #qtforandroid until today.

#necessitas wins by age, population and openness. A potential
problem there is the lack of an operator as seen during the

to keep around.

There was no fragmentation this morning. #necessitas was the
only channel listed in the wiki. Someone added #qtforandroid
in the mean time, which now has been replaced by a recommendation
to use #qt-android.
