As far as I know there isn't yet a currently active effort to support Qt5.

http://qt-project.org/wiki/PySide_Roadmap focuses on near-term work and 
mentions Qt5 only as something in the future.  This is because the 
current developers are mostly focused on using PySide with Qt4 for now.  
I expect this will start to change over time but perhaps not that 
quickly.  Working on Qt5 and/or Python3 support would be a great way for 
new developers to get on board with contributing to PySide.  We do need 
more developers.

Here's a list of issues for Python 3 support:
