I think we should be able to make everyone happy if we handle these the same
way we handle the EWS and style bots.

The data lives on another server (appengine in this case) and is brought
into the bugzilla page via an iframe. We could have an iframe for the Qt
release that is empty by default, but shows a link to the release when that
patch has been integrated into a branch.
