ProFUSION and Samsung.

Yes, we want to work directly with upstream. ProFUSION itself will keep
working on it even if contracts are over, as it is a great component for
EFL and we invest a good amount of work in EFL-related technologies as
it is part of our service offerings.

I am doing the cleanups required by the upstream task, merge of GTK+'s
and EFL's build system, and will do further works on unifying both GTK
+'s and EFL's codebases. There are other people working on this port,

- Rafael Antognolli <antogolli at profusion.mobi>, working on the port
since August last year, did a great amount of work to get optimizations
and fixes.
- Gustavo Sverzut Barbieri <barbieri at profusion.mobi>, core developer of
EFL, rewrote the WebKit/efl/ based on initial port by INdT. Is now the
manager and internal ProFUSION reviewer.
- Lucas De Marchi <lucas.demarchi at profusion.mobi>, working to fill the
gaps, like missing APIs in WebCoreSupport.
- Raphael Kubo  da Costa <kubo at profusion.mobi>, worked on alternative
backing store scaling to speed up zooming in mobile systems.

Not yet, but we'll surely add it in future as we want to have automated
tests just like Qt.
