I don't think this page is meant to represent an opinion of the whole  
project, but rather a set of requests from the QtWebKit developers  
from the project as a whole. I think it would be a good idea to  
discuss the substance of the requests on the mailing list. I have  
already discussed some offline with Lars and George. Are you guys up  
for discussing these topics by email? I am also happy to discuss  
further off-list.

Actually, I'm somewhat concerned as well about the QtWebKit work  
drifting away from the core somewhat. Doing work primarily in a  
separate repository and then pushing changes upstream creates a  
situation where the Qt developers communicate less with the rest of  
the project, and makes other developers less aware of their changes.  
It also means more distance from project infrastructure like the  

Qt guys, is there anything we could do to make it easier for you to  
work directly in the webkit.org repository?
