According to a comment in QTMOBILITY-1990[1], there will be no new
releases of Qt Mobility 1.2.x, as work goes into porting Qt Mobility
to Qt 5. Still, Qt Mobility 1.2.x is currently useful on Harmattan and
on the Desktop (QtMultimediaKit comes to my mind). I'm only talking
about the QtMultimediaKit part of Qt Mobility, as that's the only part
that I currently focus on - of course, other parts should build as

In bug 1147[2], I've reported an issue about building PySide Mobility
bindings on Mac OS X with Qt 4.8 and Qt Mobility's current Git HEAD.
The patch attached to that bug fixes the build for me, but in my
opinion it (obviously) needs some work to be merged - including
re-enabling the other modules of Qt Mobility.

I also wonder if the Qt Mobility bindings could reuse the CMake macros
from PySide (cmake/Macros/PySideModules.cmake) - these macros are
currently defined in a slightly different form in
QtMobility/CMakeLists.txt of PySide Mobility. Can these be made
generic enough and shared between both projects, so both projects
benefit from the changes/improvements to the macros?

Who's currently maintaining PySide Mobility, and is Desktop support
(Linux, OS X, Windows) a target? I'd like to work on my patch to clean
it up and get it integrated upstream. With the move to the Qt Project,
I'm not sure if the PySide Bugzilla is still the place to report these
bugs, or if I should do these things on qt-project.org. Any pointers
would be gladly appreciated :)
